Del Carlo, M.S., D.D.S.
offers his patients the most advanced generally accepted dental techniques
It is our goal to provide you with high quality dental care in a comfortable and relaxing environment. We understand dental anxiety and have found many ways to make your dental visits enjoyable.
According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, 75% of American Adults experience some severity of dental fear. Studies show that many adults have experience negative feelings at the thought of visiting the dental office. In many cases, these feelings lead to neglected dental health. Technology has come a long way, even in recent years. Visiting the dentist does not have to cause you stress or fear.
Nitrous Oxide, a safe and calming sedative, is one of the many solutions Dr. Del Carlo offers to help ease your nerves and help you overcome your fear of dental treatment. Nitrous Oxide, also referred to as “laughing gas” is a safe and effective option for remaining calm and comfortable during the dental treatment.
Nitrous Oxide is administered simply by inhalation and starts working immediately. There are no injections necessary. You can feel very relaxed in 2 to 3 minutes. The depth of sedation can also be altered to your individual needs. There are also no lingering after effects with this treatment and the oxide wears off quickly after your treatment is complete.
The use of nitrous oxide is a great option to ease the fears associated with dentistry. It not only put you in a relaxed state, but it also eases any muscle tension. After receiving nitrous oxide, you will remain fully attentive and aware of your surroundings. This means you are not fully sedated or sleeping, just relaxed.
Maria Gavin said “I felt very relaxed and calm. I was still fully awake and was having a conversation with the doctor and hygienist. I recommend the treatment of laughing gas to others who struggle with dental anxiety.”
Nitrous Oxide is harmless but very effective at helping you remain in a comfortable and calm state while receiving treatment. If you have any questions about Dr. Del Carlo, our team or our treatment options, please contact us today at 630-969-4413.
