Will nitrous oxide sedation put me to sleep?

Nitrous Oxide has stood the test of a time as an effective form of light sedation for anxious patients. It has been used for over a 100 years! Nitrous is not supposed to put you to sleep, although some may fall asleep. The point is to relax you, and for you to still feel conscious so you can give us feedback on your level of anxiety. The gas is inhaled through a mask you wear over your nose. The Nitrous will make you calm. The moment the Nitrous is turned off, you will recover quite quickly and “come back to earth.” It is not necessary to have someone drive you home. Don’t put off dental appointments due to fear! Call our Bothell office  today to schedule a consult!
