THE ART OF DENTISTRY
Nitrous oxide is one option Dr. Van Pelt offers his patients to help them feel more relaxed and comfortable during certain procedures. Nitrous oxide is not intended to put patients to sleep, but eases the stress and anxiety sometimes associated with dental visits. While using nitrous oxide, patients will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Van Pelt may have. Once the nitrous oxide is turned off, it completely leaves your system. Since there are no lingering side effects, you are safe to drive and get on with your day.
