Patient comfort is of utmost importance to Dr. Olson and Dr. Courtin. To help our patients remain calm and composed during a procedure we provide our patients the option of using nitrous oxide. This form of sedation helps the patient relax and reduces anxiety or fear before and during a procedure. Nitrous oxide, popularly known as laughing gas is a colourless, odorless gas that dentists have been using for many years as the primary means of sedation.
Nitrous oxide is not used on every patient. If you feel that you could benefit from using nitrous oxide, please speak with a member of our staff.
