Nitrous oxide is referred to as laughing gas and is frequently used for sedation dentistry. It is applied through inhalation by the patient, the process being carefully monitored by the doctor. You will be placed in a state of euphoria and relaxation. You may not experience any feelings of fear and anxiety. You can enjoy your dental procedure peacefully.
In most cases, all dental work can be completed in one visit under nitrous oxide sedation. The gas is safe and effective in helping patients relax. After the end of the procedure, the nitrous oxide will wear off quickly and you may be able to drive home to return to your routine.
Before being given nitrous oxide sedation, you will need to schedule a preliminary visit with your dentist to ensure you are an eligible patient. Schedule your appointment with us today to discuss your eligibility for sedation.
