Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Scranton Wilkes-Barre, PA
Nitrous oxide is one option for managing dental anxiety or providing mild sedation for dental procedures. The gas is inhaled through a face mask, which relaxes you and makes you feel lightheaded or sleepy. Nitrous oxide is also called “laughing gas.”
It has been used for dental procedures for over 100 years and is a safe and effective way to manage dental anxiety and help you feel calm during your treatment.
The sedation is constantly monitored, and our dentist will adjust the amount depending on the patient’s needs. Once the procedure is completed, the sedative is turned off, and the patient will quickly return to normal.
