Keeping your smile healthy by staying current with your oral health saves you the discomfort of toothaches and the expense of involved dental work. But how are you going to get the dental care you need if you’re even too nervous to pick up the phone for an appointment?

The secret is to find a dentist in Woodinville, WA who focuses on your comfort and offers options like nitrous oxide dental sedation also referred to as “laughing gas.” 

Benefits of Choosing Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for over 150 years and is a safe gas that you inhale through a small mask. There are no injections or pills to take, and all you have to do is lean back and inhale normally. Nitrous oxide effects include a drowsy, dreamy, and mild euphoria combined with a sense of well-being.

If you’ve been a nervous patient your entire life, you may find it hard to believe that you can experience anything close to euphoria while sitting in the dental chair. But with nitrous oxide, now you can.

Aside from its soothing effects, there are several reasons why patients in Woodinville, WA appreciate nitrous oxide:

  • Its effects are short-lasting – Unlike a sedative that stays in your system for hours, the effects of nitrous oxide last only for the duration of your dental treatment.
  • It’s safe for children – Since it’s so mild, nitrous oxide is perfect for children. Your child will remain calm and comfortable so they can sit still throughout their treatment. Nitrous oxide is ideal for any child, but it’s especially useful for kids who have trouble sitting still, need extensive dental work, or have special needs. 
  • It won’t slow you down – Since nitrous oxide leaves your system as soon as we stop administering the gas, you will leave your dentist’s office feeling refreshed and ready to go on with your busy day.
