What is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years.
Nitrous Oxide has been the trusted standard of sedation dentistry for many years
Nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is a safe, colorless gas that patients breathe in when they wish to feel more calm and relaxed with sedation dentistry. If you choose to implement nitrous oxide into your appointment, treatment is simple and involves breathing in a predetermined mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide. Patients undergoing this form of sedation dentistry will feel the relaxing effects within minutes and remain able to breathe comfortably, however they may fall asleep or be unable to remember the appointment after treatment.

Is Soft Tissue Laser Therapy Right For Me?
Your Gums Look Pretty In Pink
Nearly half of all Americans suffer from gum disease which is the number one cause of tooth loss. Soft tissue laser therapy targets areas where gum disease forms and sanitizes the affected areas, reducing the risks of developing gum disease again in the future. Soft tissue laser therapy is just one of the ways we improve patient health and satisfaction at New Image Dental in Mission Valley.

Because they look and feel natural and don’t require removal for cleaning, they are a popular form of restorative dentistry for patients who might forget they’re not regular teeth!
