Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting sedation method that we administer in-office, as soon as you get comfortable in our treatment chair. We’ll place a small nose mask on your face that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. The effects of the sedation take place almost immediately. You’ll feel a wave of euphoria and relaxation wash over you as we work on finishing up your treatment. As soon as we’re done, we’ll remove the mask and you’ll feel the effects quickly fade away, allowing you to continue on with your day as you normally would.
