Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, is an inhalation gas that is administered in the dental office. Nitrous Oxide is used to alleviate anxiety in the dental office. Our staff is very well trained in recognizing dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is actually the third most common fear. Fear of heights and fear of public speaking are the most common. At Royal Oaks Dentistry, we have Nitrous Oxide available in all of our operatories. There is no additional cost for this added service. Simply inform the doctor, your dental hygienist or assistantant if you would like to learn more about the benefits of Nitrous Oxide.
