What is nitrous oxide sedation dentistry?

Nitrous oxide sedation is a safe, helpful method of sedation that utilizes a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen to help you feel calm and at ease during your dental treatment.

Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide lends the user a feeling of being relaxed but also in complete control throughout the procedure. Administered through a face mask, this form of sedation allows you to be awake and aware of your surroundings.

Unlike other methods of sedation, the effects of nitrous oxide dissipate almost as soon as the mask is taken off.

In combination with the expertise of our well-trained staff, nitrous oxide sedation can make your dental procedure much more pleasant and helps to relieve nervous patient  anxiety.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Who is a good candidate for nitrous oxide sedation?

Nitrous oxide sedation dentistry is an excellent choice for individuals with severe anxiety of or an extreme aversion to dental work that prevents them from receiving the dental care they deserve.

It can also be helpful for children who have a fear of the dentist, and for those with tooth pain or sensitivity.

Individuals who require intense dental work over a longer period can also benefit from nitrous oxide sedation.

Because it is administered through a face mask rather than intravenously, like other sedation, it is a minimally invasive option. This makes it an excellent choice for almost anyone who requires sedation to receive proper dental care.

At Owens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we are happy to help you choose the right form of sedation for your needs.
