What Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

If you have been avoiding dental appointments due to fear and anxiety, you may be a good fit for nitrous oxide sedation at The Dentist of Allen. Our practice in Allen, TX offers nitrous oxide sedation for longer procedures and to comfort individuals with anxieties and fears during normal dental checkups and exams. Nitrous oxide (N2O) gas is an effective sedation method that can help you safely relax during your visit. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide keeps you awake while relaxing you at the same time. Set up a consult with our team to discuss the use of sedation methods like N2O.

What Can I Expect During Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Before your procedure, the nitrous oxide will be administered through a mask on your face. The gas acts quickly as you inhale it. We will closely monitor your response to the gas and adjust the volume as needed throughout the appointment so you remain safe and at ease. You might notice a tingling sensation in your arms and legs and a feeling of euphoria as the N2O takes effect. Nitrous oxide is typically used alongside a local anesthetic, like lidocaine, to deaden sensation. After the procedure is complete, the gas will be turned off and the effects should begin to fade immediately.

Recovery from N2O sedation is usually immediate, as the gas clears your body in a matter of minutes. You will be able to operate a vehicle and resume your daily activities as soon as you leave our office. Side effects are not common, but you may experience sweating, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, headaches, or chills. Don't hesitate to contact our staff if you have any side effects that last longer than a few days. To minimize the risk of nausea and vomiting, we recommend that you eat a light meal before your procedure and then hold off at least three hours after you leave before eating a full meal.
