Nitrous Oxide

Some patients come to us with dental anxieties, and we’re here to tell you that we understand. Visiting the dentist can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t been to the dentist in many years. To help those who have dental anxieties feel completely relaxed while receiving the necessary treatment, we offer nitrous oxide, a form of sedation dentistry. Sedation through nitrous oxide, or laughing gas as it’s more commonly known, is a safe and effective way to make any dental appointment comfortable and pain-free.

Nitrous oxide takes effect a few minutes after it’s administered and the effects of it will go away a few minutes after it’s been removed. This means that it is completely safe for you to drive to and from your appointment at Family Dentistry of Grand Prairie. We also use local anesthetic and other pain management techniques during certain procedures for an even more pain-free visit. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, we invite you to receive the care you need at our office. With nitrous oxide and our effective pain management techniques, every appointment with the dentist will be pain-free and pleasant!
