Nitrous oxide provides mild anxiety and pain relief in patients who are slightly nervous or sensitive to dental care. It can be used alone during everyday procedures like porcelain veneers, dental cleanings or for pediatric patients.
It can also be used in conjunction with one of our other sedation options to make you comfortable as the other sedation method takes effect.
Inhaled Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Laughing gas is safe and effective on just about everyone, and the inhaled air usually takes effect within just 5 minutes. Most people feel tingly and warm for the remainder of their procedure. Once we’re finished, we simply turn the nitrous off and have you breath 100% oxygen for 5 minutes. You can then easily drive yourself back home or to work without any problem!
Feel free to request nitrous oxide or alternative oral sedation during any appointment at Sleep Dentistry of Spokane. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
