Yes! Also called nitrous oxide, this gentle form of sedation helps many of our Centennial patients who experience dental anxiety or just want a more comfortable experience.
How Nitrous Oxide Helps with your Dental Procedure
As a gas, nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and delivered through a small nasal mask. We’ll start the flow before your procedure, and you just need to sit back, relax, and breathe. Soon, you will feel a very calming, soothing sensation take you over, and the relaxing feeling will last throughout your appointment.
You will be awake and alert enough to communicate with us, but the activity around you will seem far away and won’t concern you. We will monitor you carefully to ensure that you are comfortable, and when your procedure is completed, we turn off the flow of nitrous and switch to pure oxygen.
Any drowsy sensations you felt will soon fade away, and you will leave our office feeling alert and refreshed. There’s no need for a driver to get you to and from your appointment, and you can resume your usual daily routine when you leave our office.
