Dr. Farid Noie offers nitrous oxide sedation to manage dental anxiety and help you receive your care in comfort. If you feel nervous about visiting the dentist, this form of sedation dentistry could be an excellent solution for you.
What Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is also known as laughing gas, and is a mild form of sedation that works via inhalation. When you receive nitrous oxide, our dentist will place a mask over your nose through which the sedative gas will flow. As you continue to inhale, you will become relaxed and may experience a euphoric or “floating” sensation. This will help you feel calm and at ease while you receive treatment.
Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe – the effects will wear off within a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, allowing you to safely and legally drive yourself home. This form of sedation is also a good option for both children and adults. Our team will monitor you closely during your treatment to ensure that you remain comfortable and that you do not experience any complications from your care.
When Is Nitrous Oxide Recommended?
Nitrous oxide is a good option if you:
- Experience dental anxiety or phobia
- Feel anxious or nervous about a treatment you have not experienced before
- Dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office
We will discuss your concerns, oral health and treatment options, and medical history with you before your appointment to determine if nitrous oxide is the right option for you.
