Nitrous oxide sedation (also known as laughing gas) is a great relaxation option for those who are nervous or uncomfortable visiting the dentist. Nitrous oxide safely and effectively helps you feel comfortable during your treatment and wears off shortly after your treatment is complete. You may want to consider nitrous oxide sedation if you have:
- Dental fears or anxiety
- A need for extensive treatment
- Difficulty sitting still for long periods of time
With nitrous oxide, we can always provide you with a relaxing and comfortable treatment. Nitrous oxide is also a great option for children who are nervous about their dental visit. When you receive nitrous oxide, our dentists will provide you with a nose mask, through which you will receive the sedation medication. As you inhale, you will begin to experience a relaxed sensation. Some patients have described the feeling as “euphoric” or “floating.” Once the nose mask is removed you will recover quickly and be able to safely and legally drive yourself home following treatment.
