The Advantages of Nitrous Oxide

The Advantages of Nitrous OxideAt all times, we are dedicated to providing a warm and comfortable environment to patients of all needs and ages.  Sometimes, this may not be quite enough for those with very sensitive gag reflexes or an intense anxiety over dental treatments.  This is why our Northridge dentist offers all of the leading sedation techniques, including the ever-popular nitrous oxide.

Nitrous oxide offers some huge advantages for many of our patients.  First, it is important to understand that this is an exceedingly safe sedation dentistry technique in which patients breathe in a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to produce a euphoric state.  The effects last for only a short time once the patient stop breathing in the mixture, making it ideal in for many procedures.

Nitrous oxide sedation is almost always well tolerated, it is reversible, it has a rapid onset, it is non-allergenic, and it can be given in many different concentrations.  Almost all patients report being put completely at ease, feeling absolutely no pain, and feeling as if the treatment lasted only seconds.  Our only recommendation is that patients refrain from eating for two hours before the visit and make sure that they have a ride home after the procedure has taken place.

Northridge Dental Group is proud to provide all of the leading dental services, including sedation options, in a caring and warm environment.  If you or a loved one has refrained from a dental appointment due to anxiety, a low pain tolerance, or a sensitive gag reflex, contact us today to begin exploring what sedation options may be available to you.
