No Fear Dentistry
Dental anxiety is not unusual, and people of any age can experience these feelings. At our Tinley Park dental office, our team will happily adjust care to meet your individual needs, so you can receive the treatment you need and desire at a pace that feels comfortable to you. Our relaxing sedation options allow you to stay comfortable throughout treatment and allow us to work more efficiently with patients who suffer from anxiety.
Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe sedation method that helps our anxious patients relax while we perform the dental work they need. Nitrous oxide is a sweet smelling gas that, when inhaled, creates a sense of heightened calm and relaxation while you remain conscious throughout your treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide are quite temporary — simply breathe regularly following treatment, and the oxygen in the air will completely reverse the effects of the laughing gas.
