If you suffer from discomfort, hesitation, anxiety, or even fear when faced with going to the dentist’s office, you’re certainly not alone – dental phobia is actually a very common problem. However, you want to make sure not to let these feelings keep you from pursuing much-needed oral health care; after all, your problems could only worsen if left untreated, which will result in you only needing to spend more time undergoing dental procedures. Thankfully, Dr. Paul Caputo and his team take dental anxiety very seriously, which is why they offer a solution at their Naperville office: nitrous oxide. With the help of nitrous oxide, patients who suffer from mild to moderate fear or discomfort can now feel relaxed and at peace in the dentist’s chair while our team does all the work, leaving you with a brand-new, beautiful look that you’ll be proud to share with the world!
Relax and Let Us Rejuvenate Your Smile
Nitrous oxide is often referred to as “laughing gas” – and for a good reason! When inhaled, it induces feelings of relaxation, contentment, warmth, and even euphoria! When you come in for your procedure for Dr. Caputo, we’ll simply attach the mask to your nose and administer the gas, which can easily be adjusted if you’re receiving too much or too little. Once we’ve ensured that you feel comfortable, we’ll begin with your procedure.
Unlike other sedation dentistry techniques, the effects of nitrous oxide dissipate only minutes after the mask has been removed, meaning that you can return to work, run errands, and even drive directly after your appointment – no escort required. Many of our patients enjoy being able to receive the extra boost of relaxation they need during dental appointments while not having to rearrange their busy schedule to accommodate its effects. It’s truly the best of both worlds!
