For many patients, visiting the dentist is an anxiety-ridden experience, whether due to past experiences or stories shared by others. However, in the long run, avoiding visiting a dentist causes more harm than good. Without regular preventative dental care, cavities, gingivitis, and other oral health-related issues can arise and become severe conditions without proper treatment.
From gentle, professional cleanings and x-rays to sedation methods, the friendly dentists and staff at Wheat Family Dental are committed to making your visits a relaxed and comfortable experience. In addition to making your office visits stress-free and positive, we are committed to educating you about the various dental treatment options available to you.

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have.
Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the Nitrous Oxide. You won't fall asleep; instead, the Nitrous Oxide simply puts you at ease and eliminates any anxiety you may normally experience.
