Nitrous Oxide in Louisville, MS - W. Mark Donald, DMD Family Dentistry

What is Nitrous Sedation?

Nitrous sedation is ideal for patients who want to be relaxed and calm during their dental appointments. This type of sedative is safe, effective and can be used for patients of all ages. The process of administering nitrous oxide is easy and quick, and the effects wear off quickly once the procedure has been completed. We often recommend nitrous oxide to patients who are nervous or scared of their upcoming treatment or who have trouble sitting still when work is being done.

Why is Nitrous Sedation needed?

There are a few reasons for why you might want to choose nitrous oxide sedation. The most common reason for wanting it is because you're afraid, nervous or anxious about the work being done. You might benefit from this type of sedative if you are unable to sit still for long periods of time or have a strong gag reflex. This sedative option is ideal for patients who want to benefit from some type of sedation without necessarily being asleep for the procedure. That said, we find that with our caring and comfortable approach, many patients who started out nervous are able to complete a wide variety of procedures without any sedation.

What happens during the Nitrous Sedation process?

Nitrous oxide is a relatively simple sedative that can work wonders when it comes to calming you down and relaxing you. We will place a small mask over your nose and instruct you to breathe in. The sweet-smelling gas will begin to work almost immediately, relaxing and calming you while we begin the actual procedure. Once the nitrous is turned off, the effects wear off relatively quickly. After five minutes of oxygen, you are then able to drive home on your own, removing the need for an escort.
