ANXIETY / PAIN MANAGEMENT

Helping you feel at ease, and treating you like family

At Novato Family Dental Care, your comfort and trust in our practice is extremely important. With the help of modern relaxation dentistry techniques, we strive to put our patients at ease to create a positive experience at our dental office.

Some patients have dental anxiety or need help relaxing during dental procedures. We been very successful using nitrous oxide — also called laughing gas — as a relaxation technique to calm nerves and promote a peaceful experience.

We begin treatment with nitrous slowly and gently, so patients can assess their own comfort levels and let us know if their needs are being met. There are no lingering side effects with nitrous oxide, and patients can drive themselves home after treatment.

Achieving a healthy, beautiful smile shouldn’t be scary or uncomfortable. Nitrous oxide is a terrific solution for patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist, or experience discomfort and concern while in the dental chair. Patients remain in a calm, relaxed state throughout their entire visit, for a pleasantly easy dental experience.

Our goal is to make your dental visit as comfortable and minimally invasive as possible. You can put your trust in the hands of our caring dentists and staff, knowing we always have your comfort and best interest in mind.
