At Callister Dental, our team strives to help each patient feel at ease and comfortable during dental appointments. This usually means relaxing with one of our neck pillows and a cozy blanket as our Fresno, CA dentists gently administer care, but it can also mean nitrous oxide (laughing gas) if you need a little extra reassurance.
Nitrous oxide is a safe gas delivered through a small nasal mask. It produces feelings of ease and euphoria. The good news is that nitrous oxide wears off immediately following mask removal. You are in good shape to drive yourself home, and nitrous oxide is even safe for children.
At Callister Dental, our dentists never begin an invasive procedure unless you are thoroughly numb. Most patients who come to our dental office suffering from dental anxiety are surprised by the easy and painless care our team delivers.
For those who suffer from severe anxiety, our dentists can partner with a specialist and refer you for full sedation.
Our goal is always to keep you relaxed, comfortable, and smiling.
If you’re looking for a gentle dentist in Fresno, CA, contact Callister Dental today. If you have any questions about nitrous oxide or the services we offer, we are always available to answer your questions.
