Nitrous Oxide Conscious Sedation
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Technique is a new method that is used to calm people who get uncomfortable in the dental treatment setting. While some people have no problem getting their dental treatment done in the clinic, there are a few people who get uncomfortable with the thought of signing up for dental treatment. These people are anxious and simply cannot rest during the dental procedure.
Nitrous Oxide is the safest sedative in dentistry to reduce dental procedure-related anxiety and stress. Nitrous Oxide gas is administered in combination with Oxygen (O2) and both gases are kept at a safe level during administration. After a few minutes, you may start to feel the floating sensation and you may feel some tingling sensation in your hands and feet. This means that the sedation is working. Once you confirm that you’re feeling calm and comfortable, the dental procedure can begin.
During this procedure, you won’t be asleep. Moreover, you will be able to speak and remain in control during the procedure. The sedation can be fine-tuned with the level of conscious sedation you need.
