When it comes to managing dental anxiety, nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is a popular dental sedation choice for many patients. Used for a variety of dental procedures for many years, not only does nitrous oxide safely and effectively calm fears, it also enables our team to provide patients with the dental care they need to keep their smiles in optimal condition.
Which procedures is nitrous oxide most helpful for and how does it work?
Ideal for a variety of treatments and procedures that are non- or minimally-invasive, this dental sedative works by relaxing the body's muscles and slowing down the nervous system. Administered through a small mask that is placed over a patient’s nose, nitrous oxide is inhaled and quickly begins imbuing a relaxed effect, enabling our team to provide necessary oral health treatments.
It’s important to note that patients remain awake and able to communicate while receiving this sedative, and that nitrous oxide wears off soon after a procedure is complete. As a result, patients are able to drive themselves home.
If you or someone you love experiences dental anxiety and you're interested in learning more about this form of sedation, we encourage you to call our office and speak with a member of our team today. We will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you decide if nitrous oxide is the right sedation choice for you!
