Bowcutt Dental is proud to offer nitrous oxide sedation to our patients who prefer a more relaxed dental treatment experience. Many patients feel some degree of anxiety going to the dentist and may be uncomfortable at the idea of even simple treatments. Nitrous oxide sedation is a way to overcome any anxiety and discomfort and allow you to get the treatments you need in a calm and relaxed state.
If you suffer from a fear of needles, drills, or dental instruments, have sensitive teeth, are difficult to numb, or experience general discomfort at the dentist, then nitrous oxide sedation may be the solution.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is inhaled via a mask placed over your nose. It works to help you feel calm and relaxed during your dental procedure. Many patients report feeling extremely calm and relaxed through the entire dental procedure, with no discomfort.
An advantage to nitrous oxide sedation is that while it can help you to feel relaxed during treatment, as soon as the dental work is complete, you are given 100% oxygen and the effect of the nitrous oxide is gone within minutes. Sedation with nitrous oxide is a great way for patients who are mildly anxious or uncomfortable with dental treatments to feel calm and relaxed during treatment with no long lasting effects. Most patients are able to drive themselves home after treatment.
