Nitrous Oxide in Leland, North Carolina

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Dental sedation can provide:

  • Pain-free dental care
  • Anxiety-relief
  • Time for dentists to work more efficiently
  • A reduction in the gag reflex

Sedation dentistry also benefits patients with dental fear and anxiety as well as a phobia of needles, blood, loud noises. Patients with a low tolerance for pain, a poor gag reflex, and those who need multiple dental treatments in one visit also benefit. Special needs patients with movement disorders or other disabilities may also require dental sedation for a more comfortable experience.

Dental Sedation with Nitrous Oxide

Our office uses laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide to relax patients during their dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that is placed over the nose.  As patients breathe in the gas, they become more relaxed while also remaining conscious. Once the mask is removed, the effects quickly wear off. Patients can resume their normal activities after their dental appointment.
