What is nitrous oxide sedation?

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
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.
