Do you feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does the thought of sitting in the dental chair for your treatment make you feel anxious? Our friendly dentist and dental team understand that many people suffer from dental anxiety, and we are committed to doing all we can to ensure that your visit to our office is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Dr. James D. Schuette is pleased to provide nitrous oxide sedation to help you feel relaxed and calm during your dental treatment. Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative gas that can help you feel more at ease at the dentist. You will simply inhale the nitrous oxide gas through a nose mask during your treatment. The nitrous oxide is mixed with a high percentage of oxygen to make certain you are safe and comfortable throughout your visit. Nitrous oxide has very few side effects, and it wears off within just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas. You will then be able to safely and legally drive yourself home after your appointment.

If you suffer from dental phobia, we encourage you to ask us about the benefits of nitrous oxide in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. We are dedicated to helping you have a positive, pleasant dental experience.
