For many people, the thought of going to the dentist brings feelings of nervousness or anxiety. At our practice, we understand this, and we do not judge our patients for being nervous about something that is a little unfamiliar. To help our patients relax, our dentists offer a variety of sedation options, including nitrous oxide.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and trusted conscious sedative that has been used in dentistry for many years. By placing a small mask over the nose, patients simply need to breathe in the nitrous oxide, which is mixed with oxygen, in order to start feeling relaxed. Once your treatment is complete, we will remove the nose mask, and the effects of the sedation will wear off in a matter of minutes. This allows you to safely drive back to work or home after your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is an excellent sedation choice for patients of any age, and for those to experience any degree of dental anxiety. If going to the dentist makes you feel nervous, we invite you to contact our office and talk with our Stapleton dentists; we can help you know if nitrous oxide is the right choice for you.
