Nitrous Oxide

Many patients have had traumatic experiences in dentistry or have other anxieties about treatment. At Crafton Dental, Dr. Lisa Crafton strives to meet your individual comfort needs. For our patients with anxiety, nitrous oxide may be the answer.

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that will help you relax. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose.

Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option we may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. Nitrous oxide is not intended to put you to sleep; you will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions we may have.You begin by breathing normally through your nose and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs; some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. Following treatment the effects of nitrous oxide are flushed from the body by a steady flow of oxygen for approximately 5 minutes. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for you at your next appointment.
