Nitrous Oxide

Feeling anxious about your upcoming dental appointment? At Lexington Heights Dental, we offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to help ease your nerves and make your dental experience more comfortable. This safe and effective sedation method is a great option for those who experience mild to moderate dental anxiety.

Understanding Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is inhaled through a small mask placed over your nose. It helps you relax and reduces anxiety during dental procedures. One of the main advantages of nitrous oxide is that its sedation level can be easily controlled and adjusted, making it a versatile option for various dental treatments.

How Nitrous Oxide Works

During your treatment, our dentists will administer nitrous oxide, allowing you to breathe it in comfortably through a nose mask. You will quickly start to feel more relaxed and at ease. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after your appointment.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

  • Quick Onset: Nitrous oxide takes effect rapidly, easing anxiety almost immediately.
  • Controlled Sedation: The level of sedation can be easily adjusted to your comfort.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Nitrous oxide is well-tolerated, with minimal side effects.
  • Fast Recovery: You can quickly return to your normal activities post-treatment.
  • Suitable for All Ages: Nitrous oxide is a safe sedation option for both adults and children.
