Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous Oxide Mask

The most commonly used form of dental sedation, nitrous oxide, allows patients to experience a euphoric state of relaxation and diminished sensitivity to pain throughout treatment. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the nose during treatment, and our doctors are able to easily adjust dosage for optimal relaxation at any point. The effects of nitrous oxide are quickly diminished which means patients are able to return to their daily routines immediately following treatment. Our doctors are also able to safely monitor vital signs while patients are sedated.
