Do you experience dental anxiety, or dental phobia when receiving dental treatments? If so, you are not alone. The truth is, many people worry about going to their dentist for treatment because they feel vulnerable sitting in the chair while someone hovers over them taking care of their dental issues. At Stanford Dental, Our dentist, Dr. James Stanford, along with the rest of our team have found that providing nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) helps take away the fear and anxiety common with dental treatments.

Thankfully, nitrous oxide has been making our patients smile in Ballwin, Missouri for quite some time now by providing a happier chairside experience. This dental anesthetic is both safe and effective at helping you relax during your procedures. All you need to do is sit back in your chair and relax while wearing a nose mask. Just breathe in and out comfortably while we take care of your needs. This gas is mixed with oxygen, which helps you feel euphoric while breathing calmly. Don’t worry, the effects stop soon after you take off the mask following your treatment. This means you don’t have to worry about lingering effects preventing you from driving home, which can happen with other forms of sedation.

So whether you are receiving a routine dental cleaning, a root canal or a dental crown, our nitrous oxide sedation can help your experience be a pleasant one that will leave you smiling. To find out more about our nitrous oxide service, or to schedule your next visit with our team, please call 636-256-3559 today and speak to a member of our caring team. Dr. James Stanford is looking forward to helping you achieve and maintain your healthy smile!
