Nitrous Oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.
WHY IS DENTAL SEDATION NEEDED?
Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF NITROUS OXIDE?
One of its benefits is that it can be inhaled, so it is recommended for patients who have a fear of needles.
While the gas goes to work immediately during your procedure, the effects wear off once the mask is removed within minutes.
REASONS TO NOT USE NITROUS OXIDE
You should not utilize Nitrous Oxide if you have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Though there are no other major contraindications to using nitrous oxide, you may not want to use it if you have emphysema, exotic chest problems, M.S., a cold or other difficulties with breathing.
What Our Happy Patients say?
I had my first ever root canal procedure done by
Dr. Desir. He did an amazing job. Dr. Desir and his staff made me feel comfortable during the procedure and office visit.
