One of the sedation options available here at Park Central Dental is nitrous oxide. This mild form of sedation may be recommended to help manage dental anxiety so you can receive the care you need in comfort.

What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a colorless and odorless gas that has been used for decades as a safe and effective method of dental sedation. It is administered through a mask that is placed over your nose, allowing you to inhale a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. The gas helps you relax and reduces anxiety during dental procedures while keeping you conscious and responsive. Nitrous oxide sedation is known for its mild, fast-acting, and easily adjustable nature, making it an ideal choice for various dental situations.

When is Nitrous Oxide Sedation Recommended?

Nitrous oxide sedation may be recommended to help with:

  •  Dental Anxiety: Nitrous oxide is commonly recommended for patients who experience dental anxiety or dental phobia. It helps alleviate the fear and tension associated with dental visits, making it easier for patients to undergo necessary treatments.
  • Minor to Moderate Procedures: Nitrous oxide sedation is suitable for a wide range of dental procedures, especially those that are relatively quick and straightforward, such as routine cleanings, fillings or dental sealants. It can also be used for more extensive treatments when combined with other forms of sedation.
  • Children and Adolescents: Pediatric dentists often use nitrous oxide sedation to calm nervous young patients, ensuring a positive and stress-free dental experience.
  • Gag Reflex Issues: Patients with a strong gag reflex may benefit from nitrous oxide, as it can help reduce the sensitivity and discomfort associated with this condition.
  • Special Needs Patients: Nitrous oxide sedation can be a valuable tool for patients with special needs or those who have difficulty sitting still for extended periods during dental procedures.
