Have a "Laugh" on us:
Nitrous oxide which is often referred to as laughing gas is a very effective remedy for anxiety. Our patients feel calm and peaceful within minutes and can immediately relax and enjoy watching their favorite TV shows or listen to the music of their choice.
Nitrous oxide is also very effective in helping people with uncomfortable gag reflexes. It is not only effective but very safe. After an appointment a patient can safely drive themselves home or back to work without the after-effects that most anti-anxiety medications have.
For those people that have anxiety the night before an appointment or have trouble getting to the office without undo stress we can provide a simple and effective prescription pill.
We offer the following items for your comfort:
