Our team offers nitrous oxide to alleviate any anxiety you may experience during your treatment.
Our team here at the office of Kenneth R. Russell DDS understands that many people find dental appointments stressful, particularly when those appointments include fillings, root canals, or other treatments more involved than a routine cleaning. Because of this, we not only make every effort to provide personal, conscientious care, but we also offer nitrous oxide to help alleviate any anxiety you may experience.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless gas that helps to relieve pain and reduce anxiety when inhaled. In its early history, it earned the nickname “laughing gas” for the euphoria it can produce when inhaled in sufficient concentration, but the nitrous oxide we use here at the Kenneth R. Russell DDS dental offices will only be enough to keep you relaxed throughout your dental procedure. Before beginning the treatment, we’ll place an inhaler over your nose and let you breathe in the gas for a few minutes to start feeling its calming effect. Next comes a local anesthetic to completely numb the area, and then we’ll start the treatment. With nitrous oxide, you’ll get to stay relaxed and content throughout your procedure, allowing us to provide our expert care without causing you any discomfort.
Here at the office of Kenneth R. Russell DDS, we are proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we want to help you have a stress-free experience during your next dental procedure. If you are interested in our nitrous oxide, give us a call to learn more about all the benefits it can offer.
