Cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Joshua Foreman, implements nitrous oxide sedation, or laughing gas, to help his patients overcome their fears and anxieties at his dental practice in Trophy Club, TX. Dr. Foreman understands that one bad experience at the dentist or fear can keep a patient from receiving dental care (from dental cleanings to dental crowns and implants). A gentle, safe gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a face mask placed over the nose from the start to the finish of the procedure.
During your appointment, Dr. Foreman will discuss with you if nitrous oxide sedation is appropriate for your visit. You should be able to drive home after this type of sedation as it wears off rather quickly once the face mask has been removed. We will tell you before using the gas if you will be unable to drive after the procedure, and if you will need to arrange for a ride home. If you would like to learn more about nitrous oxide sedation, please call and schedule an appointment at Bella Vista Dentistry.

"This was the second time I had to get a mold for dentures. The first time at another place had been a terrible ordeal because I had to gag constantly. At Bella Vita this was not the case. Dr Foreman and his Dental Assistant Rachel did such a fantastic job that I never gagged and the mold was done in one try. What a pleasant experience that was. Bella Vita is a very unique dental office. The staff is extremely friendly, Dr. Foreman is the most gentle dentist I have ever been to. He listened to my concerns, and put me at ease, so that I knew immediately that I had come to the right place. He also knew about a horseshoe upper denture, which will eliminate all the gagging without implants, avoid unpleasant surgery and save a lot of money. I highly recommend Bella Vita. I will never go to another dentist."- G.M. / Google / Mar 23, 2018

Treatment & Aftercare
Before you have your scheduled cleaning or dental treatment, Dr. Foreman will administer the nitrous oxide to through inhalation tube placed in the nose or a face mask over the nose. The gas will continue to be administered, and we will be monitoring and adjusting the level of sedation to help you remain relaxed and calm throughout the entire procedure. You will still be awake and coherent enough to follow the dentist’s instructions and answer questions. Once the nitrous oxide is turned off, the effects wear off fast.
Nitrous oxide sedation is commonly used in many dental procedures and treatments. The cost of nitrous oxide at Bella Vita Dentistry is based on the amount used during the procedure, and patients can anticipate paying approximately $50 – $75 for the use of this safe sedation. We will also discuss with you at the treatment planning appointment if your insurance will cover it.
