Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is the most commonly used form of sedation in dentistry. It is administered by having the patient inhale the gas which will have them fall into a euphoric state and feel completely relaxed. The patient will be carefully monitored by the dentist and dental assistant. In most cases, nitrous oxide allows for all dental work to be completed in one visit.
Nitrous oxide sedation is safe and effective. Once the procedure is over, the effects of the nitrous oxide will wear off quickly. Patients will be able to drive home and return to normal daily activities.
A preliminary visit with the dentist will be needed to make sure that the patient is an eligible candidate for nitrous oxide sedation. If you have been worried about your next dental visit, don’t wait any longer. Ask us about sedation dentistry and schedule your appointment today.
