Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Am I a good candidate for nitrous oxide sedation?
If you have a fear of going to the dentist or just feel anxious by the thought of getting a dental procedure, you may need a laughing gas dentist who can provide sleep dentistry services. Dr. Wilbanks may recommend nitrous oxide as part of your treatment plan so that you can overcome your dental fears. The best candidates for this type of sedation dentistry are patients with low to moderate levels of anxiety surrounding their dental visits.
How Nitrous Oxide Works
Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas that you will inhale before and during your procedure. We control how much gas is passed through your system, and most patients feel very relaxed and even euphoric within minutes. You will feel normal as soon as the gas is stopped.
Dr. Wilbanks offers nitrous oxide as one method of sedation dentistry. You may need to work with a laughing gas dentist if you have been putting off your dental treatment for some time or feel extremely anxious when sitting in the dental chair. Otherwise known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is very effective for inducing a state of relaxation and can help you get through your procedure or treatment without anxiety or fear. We can control the amount of gas that you receive and once we turn it off, you will return to normal and be able to drive yourself home. It is a relatively safe treatment option and does not have any negative effects on the organs.
You no longer need to let fear and anxiety come between you and your dental treatment.
