At OC Family Dentistry, we understand that for some people, a trip to the dentist can be a very stressful experience. Dental phobia and fear of the dentist are not uncommon for patients. We try to make the experience as pleasant and stress free as possible. For people who need help relaxing in the dentist chair, Nitrous oxide is available. Nitrous oxide, “Laughing gas,” is inhaled through a mask to relax, used in conjunction with a local anesthetic used to eliminate pain. OC Family Dentistry makes your dental visit as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of regular dentist visits and a clean oral bill of health.
