Manage Your Dental Anxiety With Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a 100% safe and effective method for managing pain and easing dental anxiety during treatment for both kids and adults. Also known as laughing gas, this colorless odorless gas is used to induce mild sedation that wears off quickly, so you can get back to your day after your appointment.

Contrary to popular belief, nitrous oxide does not put patients to sleep, but rather eases them into a relaxed state. In this state, sensitivity to pain is greatly reduced, as is the gag reflex and extreme anxiety.

What Happens During Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Discussion

 

Before moving forward with nitrous oxide treatment, your doctor will discuss your medical history with you to determine if nitrous is a safe option. There are a few reasons why nitrous oxide treatment may not be the best idea for you. Avoid nitrous oxide if the following conditions apply to you:

  • You’re in the first trimester of pregnancy
  • You experience respiratory problems
  • You have a vitamin B-12 deficiency
  • You have a history of substance abuse
  • You suffer from mental illness

 

Quick and Efficient

 

Once your doctor has determined that nitrous oxide is right for you, they will begin the treatment. The administration of nitrous is simple; the doctor places the mask snuggly over your nose and mouth and asks you to breathe and relax.

One reason nitrous oxide is such a popular option is how quickly the effects wear off. After treatment, the doctor will administer at least 5 minutes of 100% oxygen to ensure that the nitrous has been exhaled from your system.

 

After Care

 

Your face may still feel numb if a numbing medication was also used, but the relaxation effects of the nitrous oxide will be gone after the mask is removed. Once you’ve finished your dental treatment, you can safely return to work and eat.

 

The Cost Of Nitrous Oxide Treatment In Las Vegas

Frequently Asked Questions

Rest assured that we talk to each and every one of our patients to understand their medical history to decide if sedation dentistry is the right option for you.

Sedation will make you feel drowsy and relaxed pretty quickly. Some people report feeling a mild tingly sensation. You may also experience mild amnesia afterwards and may not remember anything from the procedure.

Most sedation dentistry options don’t actually involve patients being put to sleep. Rather sedation dentistry allows patients to feel extremely relaxed. You may not even remember any of the procedure once it’s over.

When sedation is involved we always stress the importance of having a friend or family member drive you home and keep you company. It’s important to let the sedation wear off completely and give your body a rest before returning to your regular routine

If you’ve been sedated for your dental procedure we would advise you to take the day off to recover. A good rule of thumb is to set aside 24-hours before returning to your regular routine. The time it takes for any drowsiness to pass will depend on what kind of sedation you receive but may be somewhere between 2 to 8 hours.

    I had a great experience with Dr. Truong and the entire staff during my new patient and filling appointments. Everyone is so kind, and the staff works together as a team. Dr. Truong and Kris, the hygienist, were thorough and great listeners. During my filling appointment I had painless numbing injections done by Dr. Truong, and he worked quickly while being so precise. I would recommend Dr. Lobato & Associates to anyone!

    I have been with doctor Lobato for over 20 years, BEFORE that time l went thru 3 dentist, before l met him. A few years ago they changed my plan and l had to change to another dentist. Which was a very miserable time for my teeth. I finally got the opportunity to change my health and Dr. Lobato was one of the first doctors l went back to. Now once again my teeth 😬 and my dental health is perfect again. Not only is he great so is his staff.

    I absolutely love Dr. Lobato’s office! The front desk staff are always so sweet and friendly and I have the best hygienist that I’ve ever had. Dr. Lobato is also amazing. He always takes the time to talk to you and explains everything in terms that anyone can understand. I’m so glad I found their office. I actually look forward to going to the dentist’s office now! They’re the best!
