Relax and ease your anxiety with our safe and effective nitrous sedation treatments.

Nitrous sedation, commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective method to help patients relax during dental procedures. At Williams Dentistry in Fletcher, NC, we offer nitrous sedation to ensure a comfortable and anxiety-free experience for our patients. This sedation technique is ideal for those who experience dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold, or require lengthy procedures. Administered through a mask, nitrous oxide helps you feel calm and at ease while remaining conscious and responsive. Our team is dedicated to providing a relaxing and positive dental experience with the use of nitrous sedation.

Safe and Gentle Nitrous Sedation for a Pleasant Dental Experience

At Williams Dentistry, our nitrous sedation process is designed to be simple and effective. During your appointment, a small mask is placed over your nose, through which you will inhale a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Within a few minutes, you will begin to feel a sense of calm and relaxation. Throughout the procedure, we continuously monitor and adjust the sedation level to ensure your comfort. The effects of nitrous sedation wear off quickly once the mask is removed, allowing you to leave the office feeling clear-headed and ready to resume your day. Our priority is to make your dental visit as pleasant and stress-free as possible.
