    What is nitrous oxide sedation?

    Are you anxious about your upcoming dental appointment? The caring team at ACE Dental can provide safe and effective nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas. This form of sedation will keep you relaxed throughout the procedure regardless if it is a longer treatment or one that could cause discomfort. With this type of toothache-free experience, we are sure that you’ll be smiling after leaving our office!

    Breathing in Nitrous Oxide gas which is a combination of oxygen and other gasses, through a mask produces an immediate calming effect on the body. Most people describe feeling heavy or relaxed, particularly in their limbs. While under nitrous oxide you remain conscious – able to breathe normally and respond to external commands – yet some patients may fall asleep during the procedure due to its relaxing effects. Once awake again there will be no recollection of what happened while sedated by nitrous oxide; putting your mind at ease when undergoing medical procedures that require anesthesia.

    Is nitrous oxide sedation suitable for me?

    Nitrous oxide is a highly secure sedative for the majority of patients, which makes it an ideal choice when treating kids. Of course, there are other options you may find better suited if certain conditions apply to your case. After discussing with your dentist, they can make sure that nitrous oxide will be beneficial for you in the absence of:

    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
    • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
    • A common cold
    • Emphysema

    If you suffer from any of the prior mentioned respiratory issues, then nitrous oxide may not be a safe option for you. However, if you’d like to experience it first hand before making your decision about its use, ACE Dental can offer you a five-minute trial period that will allow you to determine how comfortable (or uncomfortable) using this method feels.

    Treatment Aftercare

    After your procedure, you can expect prompt recuperation since the gasses will quickly dissipate from your body. You should be able to get back behind the wheel and pick up where you left off with no issue. Although rare, side effects may occur such as a headache, chills, sweating, queasiness or fatigue – if this is the case for more than a few days please contact ACE Dental of Texas immediately so that we can assist in alleviating any discomfort. To avoid nausea or vomiting of unpleasantness during post-care it’s best to have an appetizer prior to treatment and maintain at least a three hour gap before consuming again afterwards.

    Is Sedation Treatment Covered Under My Insurance Plan?

    If you have dental insurance, we will happily contact your provider to uncover the specifics of how much coverage they offer for sedation dentistry options like nitrous oxide. This way, we can accurately inform you on expected costs prior to any procedures. At ACE Dental, not only do we accept multiple forms of payment but medical financing as well – making getting care with nitrous oxide sedation more affordable and accessible than ever before!
