Alleviate Your Dental Fears With Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called laughing gas, is a safe and effective sedative inhaled through a small mask placed over the nose. It helps patients relax during dental procedures. This type of sedation provides many benefits when used at Summit Heights Dental in North York.
How does nitrous oxide work?
When inhaled, nitrous oxide rapidly enters the bloodstream. It provides a feeling of calmness and relaxation while allowing the patient to remain conscious throughout the procedure. It is also very safe and wears off as soon as it is discontinued, so patients can resume their daily activities shortly afterward.
How is nitrous oxide administered?
At Summit Heights Dental, our qualified staff will administer nitrous oxide using a small face mask. This mask is placed over the patient’s nose, and the patient inhales a mixture of 30% oxygen and 70% nitrous oxide. The patient can control the amount of sedation they receive by breathing normally or more deeply.
What are the benefits of nitrous oxide sedation?
Nitrous oxide is beneficial for those who are anxious about dental procedures. It allows them to relax and reduces fear or apprehension, so they don’t feel overwhelmed. It can also reduce discomfort during the procedure, making completing treatment much more manageable.
Is nitrous oxide sedation safe?
Nitrous oxide sedation is a very safe and effective form of sedation. It produces minimal side effects and wears off quickly when the mask is removed, allowing the patient to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Who should consider nitrous oxide sedation?
Patients with dental anxiety or fear, those with a strong gag reflex, or those requiring extensive dental work may consider nitrous oxide for their procedure.
