Choose Nitrous Oxide For A Relaxing Dental Experience

Am I A Candidate?

Nitrous oxide has very few, if any, side effects and has been shown to produce no known allergic responses. For these reasons, it is an ideal choice for sedation dentistry. Few people are not candidates for nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide has been used successfully from the very young to the very old. 

However, women in their first trimester of pregnancy, those with emphysema, or those who have recently undergone ear surgery should avoid nitrous oxide sedation.

Nitrous Sedation Candidates

If you have dental fears that are preventing you from getting the treatment you need, talk to Dr. Eric Guirguis in Elyria or Westlake, OH about the benefits of sedation dentistry. Nitrous sedation is the answer for many patients who have a difficult time relaxing. You could be a good candidate for this type of sedation dentistry if you have:

  • Dental fears
  • Extreme anxiety about your procedure
  • Embarrassment about your teeth
  • Limited time to complete your treatment plan
  • A bad gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth and gums
  • A fear of needles and shots
  • Complex dental problems

How Nitrous Sedation Works

Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is administered to the patient via a mask. We control how much gas is entering your system, and most patients feel relaxed within minutes of inhaling the gas. You may even feel euphoric at some point. Once the gas is stopped, you will return to normal. Nitrous is typically used in combination with local anesthetic.

Laughing Gas Dentist in Elyria & Westlake, OH

Many people have dental fears that do not subside no matter how many trips to the dentist they make during their lifetime! If this sounds familiar, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry at your next visit. Nitrous sedation continues to be one of the most widely used forms of relaxation dentistry available at dental offices around the country and could be just what you need to keep up with your treatment plan.

The process entails inhaling a colorless and odorless gas during the procedure. You may feel a tingling sensation as the gas starts to take effect. You will be completely relaxed by the time the dental procedure is performed, and we stop the gas after the procedure is complete so you can return to normal. Most patients are even able to safely drive themselves home.
