Do you have dental anxiety? If so, you’ll want to ask our dentist if laughing gas is right for you.
Laughing Gas is perfectly safe to use during a teeth cleaning and other procedures.
Not only does laughing gas help you relax in the dentist’s chair, but it wears off quickly so you can drive yourself home or back to work. Our laughing gas dentist understands that some patients need help getting the dental care they need, which is why he offers laughing gas as an option.
Benefits Of Laughing Gas
Dental laughing gas is safe to use on people of all ages. During the procedure, we slip a mask over your nose and ask you to breathe deeply. It won’t take long for the laughing gas to help you feel more relaxed. Likewise, laughing gas is quick to wear off after the procedure.
Laughing Gas doesn’t put you to sleep, which means you’ll be able to cooperate with our dentist if he needs you to tilt your head or open your mouth wider so he can access a tooth. You also won’t feel groggy coming out of the procedure like you would with oral sedation or IV sedation.
Dr. Yun DDS offers sedation dentistry so patients with dental anxiety can get the care they need. To schedule an appointment with our Grand Rapids laughing gas dentist, call NorthPointe Family Dental at (616) 288-6134.
