Nitrous Oxide

Ease your nerves before your dental procedure with nitrous oxide at 360 Dental of Mill Creek. Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is a colorless and odorless gas that has been used in dentistry for decades. It is a safe and effective sedative agent that helps patients relax during dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is often combined with oxygen, creating a controlled mix that is easily adjustable to suit individual needs. The gas is inhaled through a small mask placed over the nose, inducing a feeling of euphoria and reducing anxiety.

Why Would I Need Nitrous Oxide?

If you experience dental anxiety or fear, nitrous oxide can be an excellent option for creating a calm and relaxed state of mind. Dental procedures can be intimidating for many people, leading to heightened stress and discomfort. Nitrous oxide provides a gentle and soothing experience, enabling patients to undergo treatments without unnecessary distress.

How is Nitrous Oxide Administered?

Our experienced dental professionals will administer nitrous oxide using a comfortable mask placed over your nose. As you breathe normally, the gas will take effect within minutes, allowing you to feel at ease throughout the procedure. After the treatment is complete, we will provide pure oxygen for a few minutes to ensure any remaining gas is safely removed from your system.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

Benefits of nitrous oxide sedation include:

  • Rapid onset and offset of sedation, making it ideal for short procedures.
  • Adjustability to meet each patient’s specific comfort level.
  • No lingering after-effects, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately.
