Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, often known as 'laughing gas', is a popular sedation option at Wicker Park Dental Studio, providing a relaxed and comfortable experience for our dental patients in Chicago.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Help in Dental Procedures?

Nitrous oxide helps to:

  • Alleviate anxiety and create a sense of relaxation.
  • Minimize discomfort and pain sensitivity during procedures.
  • Make dental visits more comfortable, especially for anxious patients.

What Is the Procedure for Administering Nitrous Oxide?

The gas is administered through a mask placed over the nose. You'll inhale the gas before and during the procedure. Its effects are felt within minutes, and the dosage can be adjusted as needed.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide is suitable for patients who:

  • Have mild to moderate dental anxiety.
  • Need a simple way to relax during shorter procedures.
  • Prefer a sedation method that wears off quickly post-treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects of Nitrous Oxide?

Side effects are generally minimal and may include mild nausea or dizziness, but these typically resolve quickly once the gas is turned off and normal breathing is resumed.
