Dental anxiety is a real issue experienced by many patients. Sometimes it is rooted in a bad experience from the past or it can be for different reasons altogether.
Even with that in mind, we think it’s vitally important that you don’t allow anxiety to prevent you from receiving the care that you deserve. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation. Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a colorless, sweet-smelling sedative that has been the dental standard for decades and will help you overcome your fears. And while you may experience slight amnesia, we can tell you that nitrous oxide is completely safe, ensuring that you’ll be able to breathe normally and retain full control of your bodily functions.
Why Nitrous Oxide?
- We can increase or decrease the depth of sedation throughout your visit.
- You won’t experience any after effects.
- Nitrous oxide won’t affect the function of your heart or lungs at all.
- It will help to minimize any gagging that may otherwise occur.
- It works quickly, and can kill pain within 2 to 3 minutes.
Please note: While the use of nitrous oxide doesn’t contain major contraindications, you may choose to avoid it if you have difficulty breathing, M.S., exotic chest problems, or emphysema.
