Be like the bird that, pausing in its flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings. ~Victor Hugo

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

If you feel nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist, nitrous oxide can help you feel more relaxed and calm. At our Montrose, Colorado dental office, we use nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to reduce anxiety during dental appointments. Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is mixed with oxygen and administered through a nosepiece for you to breathe during the dental treatment. Nitrous oxide takes effect within a few minutes after it is first administered and wears off within a few minutes after it is removed from the patient. During your treatment, you will feel very comfortable and at ease; you will not sleep, and your dental experience will be pleasant and enjoyable! Nitrous oxide is very safe, and the patient is legally safe to drive after using nitrous oxide during dental appointments. If you are interested in learning more about nitrous oxide and how it can improve your dental experience, please call us at the dental office of Christine S. Bloss, D.D.S today!
