You don’t have to be a dentist to understand that a lot of people become seriously nervous when it’s time for them to get dental care. We completely understand here at Long Creek Dental, which is why we’re happy to offer nitrous oxide sedation. This safe and gentle method has been utilized for over a century, and with it, we can calm a patient so that their appointment is completely stress-free, no matter what type of treatment they are getting. If you’d like to use sedation at your next appointment, contact us today.
With nitrous oxide sedation, a small mask is placed over a patient’s nose, and they breathe in a mixture of the gas and oxygen. After a few minutes, a feeling of warmth, calm, and slight numbness will be felt throughout the body. The mask stays on for the entire appointment, and once it is removed, the effects go away rather quickly. This means a patient can resume their normal day and won’t have any lasting drowsiness afterward.
