If you feel anxious, nervous or fearful when visiting the dentist, you may benefit from nitrous oxide sedation. Our caring dentist will discuss this option with you to determine if it will help you feel more at ease and receive the treatments you need.
When Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation Recommended?
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask. It is typically recommended to help manage dental anxiety and fear, and it is a great option for patients of all ages. If you experience dental anxiety or fear, are nervous about a treatment you have not received before, or simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, Dr. Mason Miner may recommend this sedation option for you.
Benefits of Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide can help you feel relaxed and comfortable while receiving treatment. This simple form of sedation works quickly, often producing a euphoric or “floating” sensation. It also wears off quickly after our dentist and team remove your face mask, allowing you to safely and legally drive yourself home following treatment.
