Who Is a Good Candidate for Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide sedation dentistry is an all-around excellent option for most patients. We typically recommend it for those who experience the following:

  • Have a sensitive gag reflex that makes dental cleanings and treatments difficult to sit through.
  • Have disabilities that could make sitting through a procedure or cleaning uncomfortable.
  • Have had a bad past experience with a dentist.
  • Are overstimulated by the sights, sounds and smells of the dental office.
  • Experience mild to moderate dental fear or anxiety.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?

Nitrous oxide is administered in-office by our trained dental professionals. We’ll place a small mask over the nose that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Its effects will be near-immediate, helping you feel at-ease during your appointment or treatment. Once your visit is over, our team will have you breathe in oxygen to help flush the effects of the sedation out of your system. This will allow you to drive and carry on with the rest of your day as you typically would.
