Will I be groggy after sedation with nitrous oxide?

One of the advantages of using nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is that it is a very mild form of sedation that only lasts as long as we’re administering the gas. Once treatment is over, you will feel no after-effects, and depending on the type of procedure you had done, you will be able to go about your normal activities.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is very effective for many people who need a bit of sedation to help with dental anxiety. 

But you may have greater anxiety about dental procedures, and sedation with nitrous oxide is helpful in allowing you to relax completely. With nitrous oxide, you will not go to sleep. You will, however, feel very calm and detached from the activity around you.

At Woodin Creek Dental, we also offer oral conscious sedation, which provides deeper relaxation. We can also combine this with nitrous oxide for the ultimate in relaxation and stress-free dentistry. Many patients tell us that they have little or no memory of the procedure after it’s completed.
