Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Do you wish you could feel more relaxed during your visit to the dentist? Does the idea of sitting in the dental chair for a long period of time make you feel anxious? If so, nitrous oxide sedation may be a good option for enhancing your dental experience at Douglas Dental. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas that you inhale during your treatment. The nitrous oxide is mixed with a high percentage of oxygen and is delivered via a nose mask. As you inhale the nitrous oxide, your worries and nervousness will melt away. Nitrous oxide results in feelings of relaxation and calm. Some patients even giggle, resulting in the name laughing gas.

Because nitrous oxide is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during your dental treatment. If needed, you will be able to answer questions from our dentists or follow their directions. Nitrous oxide has very few side effects, and the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.
