What is Laughing Gas?
Many people have a fear of the dentist and put off having dental work for as long as possible. Drs. Richard and Jennifer Kernagis in FishHawk help overcome this fear of the dentist in a variety of methods. One of the ways to overcome your fear of the dentist is to have our helpful staff at Kernagis Dental Excellence near Apollo Beach administer laughing gas. Laughing gas is administered by putting a mask over your nose and mouth and inhaling a safe, odorless gas.Within four of five inhalations of laughing gas, usually you will feel relaxed and calm. Though it’s called laughing gas, this does not mean that you suddenly will feel like giggling uncontrollably. Laughing gas is simply a term that describes a feeling of less anxiety. We also supply comforting blankets to put over you and there’s a television in your room to make you feel at ease.
