Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide

Keeping you comfortable during your dental procedure is extremely important to us. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation, upon request, for most dental procedures.

 Sedation Dentistry Provides:

  • Fast onset and recovery
  • Light sedation while you’re still awake
  • Relaxation from head to toe

There are very few contraindications for nitrous oxide, one of them being chronic sinusitis. This is because the gas is delivered through a soft nosepiece that is breathed through during the procedure.

What to Expect

As soon as Dr. Bender turns the nitrous on, it mixes with pure oxygen and creates a warm, tingly sensation for the person breathing in the air. This makes you feel more relaxed during everyday procedures like deep cleanings, root canals, or even a drill-free filling as well as cosmetic procedures for a smile makeover. Once the procedure is completed, Dr. Bender places you back onto pure oxygen and the effects of the nitrous wear off within just a few minutes.
Nitrous sedation is so light that you can even drive yourself home after your appointment. It’s an affordable option that you can request at any time!
