Nitrous Oxide

It is perfectly normal to feel a little anxious during a dental visit. If you feel a bit put off by the sensations and sounds of the dentist office, our dentists and team can help. We offer nitrous oxide in Palatine, Illinois, to help you relax during your visit with Dr. George Skoog or Dr. Alla Shtilman. Call 847-359-8732 and speak with a member of our team if you would like to make nitrous oxide a part of your appointment at Advocate Dental of Palatine.

Nitrous oxide is one of the most common sedation methods offered in dental care. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide (N2O) is a safe and comfortable sedation method that is administered through a nose mask as a mild vapor. When breathing in the gas, you will feel a relaxed sensation but remain conscious during treatment, which allows you to communicate freely with our dentists and team. Because it is a mild sedative, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly after treatment, which allows you to drive safely home after your visit with our dentists.

If you are uncomfortable during dental treatments or experience dental anxiety, nitrous oxide is a great option for you to feel calm and relaxed as your dental needs are addressed. This sedation option is affordable and can make your dental experience an easy and simple one.

Our skilled dentists and team are happy to address any of your concerns and provide compassionate care as we help you maintain your oral health. If you have any questions about nitrous oxide or sedation dentistry, we encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more and schedule an appointment with our friendly dentists and team.

Patient Reviews

Dr. Skoog is very dedicated to his work and the well-being of his patients. On two different circumstances he was able to squeeze me in when he had a fully booked day. He is very good with understanding a patient’s apprehension of dentists. 🙂

- Sandy S.

So appreciative to Dr. Skoog for taking care of my husband’s terrible toothache during the holiday season. We are not patients of Dr. Skoog as we live out of state. He stayed late on a Saturday to alleviate my husband’s pain. We can’t thank him enough! Highly recommend.

- Ann M.

Great care! The office is usually on time or early. Dr Skoog is very good and offers a lot of services eliminating the need to go to multiple providers which saves time. All staff is professional and friendly as well they make you feel like your their close friend.
