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.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
