Nitrous Oxide

Book An appointment

Are you not a big fan of the dentist? Fear of the dentist is surprisingly common, and if it’s not addressed properly, it can cause complications during treatment. Snödental has professionals expertly trained in the administration of nitrous oxide to make your next visit simple and relaxing.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a safe sedative that is combined with oxygen and applied through a facemask. When inhaled, this gas makes you feel relax and also alleviates pain and discomfort associated with certain dental procedures.

Also known as ‘laughing gas’, this compound is especially effective for those patients who have strong adverse reactions to medical instruments and are about to undergo a lengthy procedure that might see them confined to the chair for several hours.

Do I Need Nitrous Oxide?

As we mentioned, nitrous oxide is most effective for those with strong aversions to dentistry. Common signs that you might benefit from nitrous oxide include:

  • Fearful and anxious around dentists

  • Strong gag reflex

  • Difficulties administering local anesthesia

What Are the Benefits of Nitrous Oxide?

Beyond making you relaxed, nitrous oxide also carries several advantages that make dental procedures easier for both the patient and the dentist. These include:

  • Enhances communication

  • The patient becomes more cooperative

  • Higher pain tolerance for longer appointments

What to Expect

Feel the effects in two to three minutes.

After you inhale the gas, a couple of minutes will pass before you start feeling a tingling sensation that will spread throughout your body. Then will come the general numbness that precedes a foggy and sleepy state under which you will still be able to communicate with your dentist.
