Nitrous Oxide Dentist Wyoming MI


Nitrous oxide is a type of gas that, when combined in a specific ratio with oxygen, acts as an effective sedative for dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is inhaled via a mask that is placed over the patient’s nose. While under the effects of nitrous oxide, our patients do not experience pain or discomfort, and many patients do not remember their procedure after it’s over. This makes nitrous oxide an ideal sedation method for patients struggling with dental anxiety.

What to Know About Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide has no side effects and requires no recovery time. As soon as our laughing gas dentists remove the mask, the oxygen you breathe will neutralize the effects of nitrous oxide. Patients who opt for nitrous oxide sedation can feel comfortable returning to school or work right after their procedure, and adults will be able to drive themselves to and from the appointment.

Unlike other sedation dentistry options, nitrous oxide is completely safe for patients of all ages. Before your dental procedure, please let our dentists know if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications, as these might interfere with the effects of the sedation.
