Nitrous oxide is one of the most common sedation methods offered in dental care. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide (N2O) is a safe and comfortable sedation method that is administered through a nose mask as a mild vapor. When breathing in the gas, you will feel a relaxed sensation but remain conscious during treatment, which allows you to communicate freely with our dentist and team. Because it is a mild sedative, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly after treatment, which allows you to drive safely home after your visit with our dentist.
If you are uncomfortable during dental treatments or experience dental anxiety, nitrous oxide is a great option for you to feel calm and relaxed as your dental needs are addressed. This sedation option is affordable and can make your dental experience an easy and simple one.
Our skilled dentist and team are happy to address any of your concerns and provide compassionate care as we help you maintain your oral health.
