How Does Nitrous Oxide Help Relieve Dental Anxiety?


Posted on 3/15/2018 by Water's Edge Dental
Sedation Dentistry Water's Edge Dental ID 83714-1925If you have really bad dental anxiety, or a fear of needles, or drills, nitrous oxide will be able to help you. We have something here called sedation dentistry and we can relax you and calm your nerves and you won't feel a thing during your exam or procedure.

In this article we will be discussing what sedation dentistry is and how it works.

What is Sedation Dentistry

We use sedation to make you more relaxed before and during your dental procedure. You will be sedated by a mask that will be placed over your nose and you will breathe it in through your nose and out your mouth so that way the nitrous oxide will reach your brain instantly giving you a more relaxed and calm feeling.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?

When we think of the words nitrous oxide, we automatically think we will be put to sleep. Nitrous oxide will not put you to sleep, it will relax you and get you a calming sensation and it will also reduce your sensitivity to pain.

Some people even say that they feel their cheeks and gums go numb while breathing in the gas. After we give you the gas we will begin the procedure, if you're still scared we can adjust how much gas we give you, while we are doing the procedure.

When your procedure is complete, we will give you oxygen and have your breath it in so it will negate the effects of the nitrous oxide that you breathed in. All of the gas will be out of your system in 2-5 minutes of breathing in the oxygen. One of the best things about nitrous oxide after you leave the office you will be able to drive yourself home.

Is Nitrous Oxide Safe

Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anesthetics that we have available. It's not an allergenic and it won't irritate you. One of the reasons why we use this method is because it very effective and safe for you and your children.

After this appointment, you will have very little or no memory of your treatment which will give you a more relaxed feeling for your next appointment. If you have any more questions or concerns about sedation dentistry come in and see us, or call. We are always here to help in any way we can.
