What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective sedative agent mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. It's used to help patients relax during their dental procedures. At Ascension Premier Dental, we utilize nitrous oxide to enhance patient comfort and relieve anxiety during dental treatments.

 How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?

- Administration: Nitrous oxide is administered by having you breathe normally through a nosepiece. The onset of sedation is very quick, often taking effect within minutes.

- During the Treatment: You will remain fully conscious and able to communicate, but you will feel a great sense of calm and relaxation. The depth of sedation can be adjusted quickly and easily by our team to ensure your comfort at all times.

- After the Procedure: Recovery from nitrous oxide is rapid. The gas is eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 minutes after the gas supply is stopped. You can safely drive home and continue with your daily activities immediately after your appointment.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide Sedation

- Fast-Acting: Provides quick relaxation and pain control.

- Controlled Sedation: The level of sedation can be adjusted in real-time for safety and comfort.

- No Lasting Effects: After the treatment, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly, allowing you to return to your normal activities with no downtime.

- Safe for All Ages: Nitrous oxide is a preferred method of sedation for both children and adults.

 Ideal Candidates for Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is especially suitable for patients who:

- Experience mild to moderate dental anxiety

- Need a shorter, less complex dental procedure
