Receive Comfortable Dental Care with Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is a safe and effective sedation option widely used in dentistry to help patients relax during their procedures. Administered through a mask that fits over the nose and inhaled, nitrous oxide creates a calming and euphoric sensation, significantly reducing anxiety and discomfort. Aside from calming your nerves, nitrous oxide provides a variety of other benefits, including:

  • Fast-acting: Patients will feel relaxed almost immediately
  • Quick recovery time: You’ll be able to return to normal activities shortly after your appointment
  • Adjustable treatment: Our dentists can control the level of sedation needed for each patient

Frequently Asked Questions About Sedation Dentistry

Hearing the term “sedation” can cause a whole other set of fears, especially if you’re unsure how it will affect you. To help alleviate any concerns and provide clarity, we’ve put together a list of sedation dentistry FAQs.

That decision is entirely up to you, but those who experience dental-related fears and difficulties with standard numbing are ideal candidates for sedation dentistry. Additionally, we recommend patients who have strong gag reflexes and extremely sensitive teeth undergo sedation dentistry to relieve any discomfort felt during treatment.

As a mild sedative, nitrous oxide is safe for children and adults of all ages. Our dental professionals carefully administer and monitor it to ensure safety and effectiveness. Its rapid onset and quick recovery time make it ideal for children, allowing them to undergo necessary dental treatments without anxiety or discomfort.

If you’re concerned about your child receiving nitrous oxide sedation, talk with the My Family Dental Novi dentists. We’d be happy to explain the entire process and answer any questions you may have.

When you’re given nitrous oxide, you aren’t fully asleep like other sedation dentistry techniques. Instead, you enter a euphoric state that allows you to respond to your dentist’s questions or instructions. The effects of this short-acting sedative last only until the gas is turned off. Once this happens, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes for the sedative to leave your system.
