March 20, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

Dr. Carol Moreno, family and cosmetic dentist in West Liberty, IA, recently introduced complementary nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, for patients undergoing treatment at Gentle Family Dentist to provide them with the most comfortable, anxiety-free experience possible.

It is estimated that 1 in 7 Americans experience anxiety or fear of visiting the dentist. Because of that, many patients choose not to visit the dentist altogether, which can take a toll on their oral health. With this new offer, Dr. Moreno and her staff hope to encourage more patients to receive regular, vital care in a comfortable environment.

“We’re happy to now offer free nitrous oxide for our patients as part of our commitment to continually provide the best care possible,” said Dr. Carol Moreno. “Whether patients have legitimate anxiety about visiting the dentist, or if they just want a more relaxing experience at our office, nitrous oxide helps us provide better care to patients in a stress-free environment.

Nitrous oxide is a safe anti-anxiety treatment for all ages. It is administered simply and painlessly with a small mask. As the patient breathes in the odorless, tasteless nitrous oxide, it induces a pleasurable filling and inhibits pain receptors. Its effects are felt within 2-3 minutes of administering the gas, and it produces no lasting effective after treatment, so patients can safely drive home on their own after receiving it. Nitrous oxide can be used as a replacement for anesthesia for certain procedures, or can simply just be used as a relaxant during simpler procedures such as cleanings.

At Gentle Family Dentists, Dr. Carol Moreno works alongside Dr. Roberto Moreno and a highly qualified dental staff. Together, they offer a variety of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments, including mini dental implants in West Liberty, IA. For patients seeking a straighter smile without the look of traditional braces, Dr. Moreno is a certified Invisalign dentist in West Liberty, IA.

Dr. Moreno received her DDS degree from the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry. Throughout her many years of practice, she has stayed highly involved in continuing dental education and completed a Mastership from the Academy of General Dentistry. She was the president of the Iowa Academy of General Dentistry Board in 1997 and is a member of numerous professional organizations.
