At Cherrington Dental, we understand that many of our patients have dental phobia, or a fear of visiting the dentist. If you experience anxiety at the thought of coming to see Dr. Nathan T. Cherrington, we are here to help you receive the dental care you deserve in a pain-free, stress-free environment. As part of this commitment, we provide nitrous oxide in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a form of sedation dentistry. It is a great way to reduce or eliminate anxiety for the fearful patient. It is safe, effective, and convenient!
Nitrous oxide may be the right option for you if you have ever experienced the following:
- Fear and anxiety of needles, drills, and sounds and smells of the dental office, or any other aspect of dentistry
- Sensitive gag reflex
- Traumatic dental experiences in the past
- Allergies to other types of sedatives
For adult patients, we offer also a prescribed light sedative called Halcion, which provides a great night’s sleep before your appointment and a completely comfortable experience during treatment. If you would like to learn more about how nitrous oxide and Halcion are used in our office for your benefit, or if you are interested in inhalation sedation at your next appointment, feel free to call us. We would be happy to address all of your questions and concerns. We hope to hear from you soon!
