We understand that for some patients, dental procedures can be a source of great anxiety. Our friendly and experienced staff is here to help ease the concerns commonly associated with going to the dentist.
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
Nitrous oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is safe. The patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide.
The patient is able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions.
The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep, not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.
There are many advantages to using Nitrous Oxide
The depth of sedation can be altered at any time to increase or decrease sedation.
There is no after effect such as a “hangover”.
Inhalation sedation is safe with no side effects on your heart and lungs, etc.
It works rapidly as it reaches the brain within 20 seconds. In as little as 2-3 minutes its relaxation and pain killing properties develop.
