Nitrous OxideCONSCIOUS SEDATION
FEEL AT EASE
what to expect
Nitrous oxide is incredibly simple and straightforward. When you sit down in the chair, we place a small mask over your nose. We then turn on the nitrous oxide and oxygen. As you inhale the gas, it goes to work almost instantly, enabling you to feel relaxed and comfortable. When your procedure is over, the nitrous oxide is shut off, but the oxygen is left on for a few extra minutes. This is done to help ensure all of the nitrous oxide has left your system. The effects wear off very quickly, and you are even able to drive yourself home in most cases.
Nitrous oxide is both incredibly safe and very effective. It is the mildest, and safest, form of sedation. Nitrous oxide also has no lingering side effects once it has worn off.
With nitrous oxide, we can help you to feel more relaxed and comfortable, enabling us to provide you with your necessary care, whether it is a dental cleaning and exam, performing a root canal, dental implant or any other treatments.
