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!
