Nitrous oxide is one of the most common sedation methods used by dentists, and it doesn't require any shots or needles. You'll breathe in a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide through an inhalation mask, and its effects take place in a couple of minutes.
Most patients report a feeling of floating and deep relaxation, and unlike with a general anesthetic, you won't be "asleep." You'll still be able to respond and communicate with Dr. Bagley throughout your procedure, and you'll feel completely comfortable and at ease.
When your procedure is over, and we remove the mask, the nitrous oxide effects subside in only a few minutes. You won't deal with side effects that take time to wear off, and it's completely safe for you to drive and return to your daily activities. Better yet, we can use nitrous oxide sedation with most dental procedures so you can feel comfortable and at ease getting the treatment you need for a healthy smile.
