Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, known by many as laughing gas, is the most commonly used form of sedation in dentistry. It is administered by having the patient inhale the gas, which is carefully monitored by your doctor. Oftentimes, patients describe this as a euphoric state and feel completely relaxed. This will allow any dental anxiety to fade away, leaving you to sit back peacefully until your dental work is complete. In most cases, all dental work can be completed in one visit while you are sedated. You will need to have a preliminary visit with your dentist to ensure that you are an eligible candidate for nitrous sedation. If are worried about your next dental visit, time to put those fears at ease. Ask our Grand Junction dentist about sedation dentistry today.


A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that is performed in your dentist’s office. Your child may need this procedure in cases where their frenulum is too thick or too short. If left untreated, this can affect the movement, growth, or development of their mouth, and corrective action is necessary to resolve the situation.

A frenectomy can be performed with either a scalpel or laser and takes less than 15 minutes. Using a laser causes minimal bleeding and does not require stitches. A laser also results in less postoperative discomfort and a shorter healing time. Young children and infants are put under general anesthesia for the procedure, and adults have the procedure performed using local anesthesia. If your child needs a frenectomy, there is nothing to worry about. The procedure is very successful and causes minimal discomfort.
