Our team understands that you would probably rather be anywhere else than in a dental office receiving treatment. Millions of people feel the same way, but we have found that gentle nitrous oxide is usually all that’s needed to help our patients relax and get the care they need.
Also called inhalation sedation, we deliver nitrous oxide through a small nasal mask. Just breathe normally, and in a few moments, you will feel very relaxed, dreamy, and slightly detached from all the activity around you. However, you will remain fully conscious and able to respond to questions from your team.
Nitrous oxide has no lingering effects, and when we finish treatment, we’ll switch to pure oxygen for a few minutes that will leave you feeling alert and refreshed. You don’t need someone to drive you to and from the office, and you will be able to go on with your usual routine when you leave our office.
