Dr. Trujillo can administer nitrous oxide to help anxious patients relax during dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is an excellent choice as it leaves the body almost immediately afterward. This means that patients can drive themselves home and return to their normal routine right away. For those patients who need just a bit more relaxation, we may prescribe a medication, which patients can take before their visit. These patients will need to make arrangements for transportation to and from our office.
