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.

"I am a new patient and had a chipped front tooth. They got me in the same day and my teeth look better than ever. Great staff and Dr. Foreman is outstanding. I couldn't be happier with the service and will be taking my family back for all of our dental care."- C.M. / Facebook / May 24, 2018
"Excellent customer service from the staff and the utmost professionalism from Dr. Foreman.A recent job change put me in the market for a dentist that would accept my new insurance. Bella Vita Dentistry was high on the list and now I see why. Everything was explained to me in very clear and concise language and I was made aware of all costs, both out of pocket and covered.Dr. Foreman's staff is excellent and made me very comfortable during my most recent procedure. Dr. Foreman himself was also wonderful. On my first visit a thorough check-up revealed some minor issues that had previously been missed by my previous dentist.My most recent visit included a major procedure and it was handled promptly and with no issues. I was in and out with a new crown in a couple of hours...not the two weeks it takes at some other places!This location is a bit out of my way, but there is a new one opening very close to where I live. I plan on being a patient here for a long time to come."- N.R. / Google / May 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.
