    I’ve had my fair share of root canals and plenty-o-gas… Although the feeling from the gas was groovy that pain and experience was not something I’d like to repeat.

    There are several ways to keep your teeth clean and you mouth healthy! Always drink water with meals so that the acid and residue from food is washed away as you sip it during mealtime. Add warm water then sprinkle baking soda on your toothbrush and brush your teeth for a whiter healthier smile. See a dentist annually for preventive dental health. The cost of dentistry is increasing but there are ways to save money! There are ways to defray costs, see link below.

    I had a filling at the dentist today and my dentist gave me laughing gas. It made me feel really silly, kinda a happy-drunk feeling. I was nervous to start with but after a minute or 2 of sniffing the gas I didn’t have a care in the world. I barely remember the dentist giving me the filling.

    I agree that relaxation of the patient can affect the outcome of a dental procedure. Nitrous oxide, is considered as an advanced medical technique that aims to assist the patient during the process.

    My brother is usually distracted because of the pain that he feels during a dental crowning. Last month, he visited his dentists. In Charleston SC and other clinics in the country, trace amounts of ‘laughing gas’ are now made available for patients. He tried this and was satisfied because he wasn’t in any way distracted during his last crowning. It can also be a good solution for other people who experience panic attacks whenever they are in a dental clinic.

    Thanks for sharing this information!

    I had Nit. Ox for a rt canal last week. I am also on Lexapro for anxiety and depression. Also was given novocaine before the rt canal. During the proceedure if I tried to raise my forarms or hands, hands and fingers shook uncontrolably, and I felt like I wanted to jump out of the chair; that feeling built til large tears ran out my eyes. I silently shook and cried. Felt weird all day.

      Had the same experience for a filling yesterday, Susan. I am also on Lexapro. Had about 12 novocaine shots that took a long time to numb, so I opted for the “laughing” gas. I started to cry, felt like I was having an out of body experience. Totally freaked me out.
