If fear or anxiety has kept you from visiting your dentist in Grove City, OH, you are not alone! Millions of people feel anxious about dental visits, and unfortunately, it keeps them from getting the routine dentistry they need to maintain their smiles. 

Did you know that nitrous oxide (laughing gas) offers a simple, yet effective solution for helping you get the dental care you need? Here's what you should know.

Nitrous Helps "Take the Edge Off"

Many folks just need a bit of extra TLC to get them into the dental chair. Using laughing gas is a great way to "take the edge off" and help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous is delivered to you through an inhalation mask that is comfortable to wear during dental procedures, and it is combined with oxygen to help prevent any unwanted side effects. 

Nitrous is safe for both adults and children to use during most types of dental procedures. Even better, it wears off as soon as you take the mask off, so you can easily get back to your normal activities.
