How does nitrous oxide sedation work?

Many people suffer with dental anxiety, which is actually very common. Sometimes their fear is so great that they simply go without dental treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation may be all you need to help you get the treatment you need.

We have options at Woodin Creek Dental because we want you to be able to relax during treatment so you can stop putting off dental visits and possibly damaging your oral health. Nitrous oxide is a gentle form of sedation that is very effective for many of our patients.

Unlike other sedation methods, nitrous oxide is very mild. We administer the gas through a small nasal mask, and all you have to do is sit back and breathe normally.

Almost immediately you will begin to feel rather drowsy and very relaxed. We continue sedation throughout your treatment, and a member of our team is by your side at all times to make sure you are completely comfortable. Once treatment is finished, and we stop the nitrous, you will feel completely normal.

At Woodin Creek Dental, your complete comfort is one of our top priorities. If you have more severe anxiety, we do have other options for sedation. Please contact our office and we will be happy to answer any questions you have about sedation options.
