Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Sedation
Crosstown Dental is equipped to offer Nitrous Oxide for patients that would prefer to have a more relaxed feeling during dental visits. Nitrous oxide is commonly referred to as laughing gas. It is used in dentistry to allow patients with anxiety to have a better dental experience. Patients experience a feeling of general numbness but are still able to communicate with their dentist. This feeling is referred to as “conscious sedation”.
The use of Nitrous oxide by a trained professional is considered to be safe and healthy, as it does not harm the internal organs. It is very fast acting. If you have dental anxiety, talk with our team about the use of Nitrous oxide during your dental treatment.
