Safe Nitrous Sedation
Otherwise known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe, effective sedative that can be added onto any dental appointment for increased comfort. The effects wear off immediately after use, allowing you to go right back to your regular routine.
Benefits of nitrous oxide include:
- Full consciousness
- Mild sedative effects
- Perfect for all ages
- Can be included with any treatment, including cleanings
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a soft nosepiece during your visit. The gas causes a relaxed sensation within just a few minutes. It is safe and effective for all patients, but may be contraindicated for people with sinus congestion or allergies.
Once your procedure is completed, you are placed back onto 100% oxygen for 5 minutes, allowing the nitrous oxide to leave your circulatory system. Most people are able to return to work or school immediately after their procedure.
