We use nitrous oxide in St. Augustine and Palm Coast, Florida, because it is fast-acting and safe for almost all patients. Administered via a mask worn during your procedure, nitrous oxide does not have lasting effects on the body. This makes it perfect for most of the simple services provided by our periodontists. To receive nitrous oxide at your next visit to Dental Specialists of North Florida, call 904-794-1000! We want to make your time with Dr. John Thousand, Dr. Robert Thousand and Dr. Michael Romani as comfortable as possible.
