Our dentists and team understand that visiting the dentist can be a source of anxiety, and that you may experience some stress or even fear during your appointments. We are committed to alleviating this anxiety and stress so that you can have the most comfortable and positive experience possible as well as receive the care you need. As part of this commitment to you, our dentists may recommend nitrous oxide sedation. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that mixes nitrogen and oxygen. It is administered through a comfortable nose mask, allowing you to inhale the gas and experience a sense of relaxation and comfort during your dental treatment.

As you breathe in the gas, you might begin to feel a pleasant, euphoric sensation that eases your nerves and diminishes your anxiety. This gentle sedation allows you to remain awake and communicative, enabling our dental team to work with you effectively while ensuring you are as comfortable as possible. One of the significant advantages of nitrous oxide is its quick reversal; the effects wear off minutes after the nose mask is removed, allowing you to return to your daily activities without delay, including driving.

Nitrous oxide sedation is particularly beneficial for patients who experience dental anxiety or phobia. Whether it is the unfamiliarity of a new treatment, the unease at the sound of dental equipment or the general discomfort of being in a dental office, nitrous oxide provides a way to make your dental visit more pleasant and less stressful. Our team is committed to creating a positive, anxiety-free experience for every patient. We encourage you to share your feelings and concerns with us before your appointment, so we can tailor your treatment plan to include nitrous oxide sedation if it is deemed suitable for you.
