What is nitrous oxide? Nitrous oxide is a gas that is used in combination with pure oxygen to relieve dentistry-related anxiety. When inhaled and absorbed into the body, it has a natural calming effect that lasts only as long as your dental procedure.
Is nitrous oxide safe? COMPLETELY. It is recognized as the safest sedative used in dentistry today. It is mild, non-toxic and removes itself naturally from your body after use. Its benefits are even recommended for patients with certain medical conditions, including high blood pressure, angina and a history of heart attacks. And, unlike general anesthesia, patients canremain fully conscious and responsive at all times.
Is nitrous oxide safe for children? ABSOLUTELY. While our practice goes to great lengths to make every child feel at ease, some children require a degree of sedation to achieve successful treatment. This is the safest, most effective form of sedation to relieve your child’s fears and ensure a positive experience.
