Nitrous Oxide – For a Stress-Free Dental Visit
Signature Smiles Dentistry is happy to offer nitrous oxide as an option for Parker, CO residents who are experiencing intense anxiety at the thought of receiving dental work. Nitrous oxide is often referred to as “laughing gas” due to the pleasant feelings it produces. This is a type of inhaled minimal sedation – it is combined with oxygen and is breathed in through a mask placed over your nose. Your dentist at can control how much is provided and will monitor you constantly to ensure that you are safe and comfortable. It often wears off fairly quickly after the appointment is complete. Many patients are even able to drive themselves home after a waiting period is completed to ensure that it has worn off. Local anesthetics may still be used in combination with nitrous oxide to numb the site of the procedure.
