Do you ever feel nervous about going to the dentist? Does the thought of sitting in the dental chair for a long treatment make you feel anxious and uncomfortable? If so, nitrous oxide sedation might be a great solution for you. Nitrous oxide is a form of sedation that we can use to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas that you will inhale through a small nose mask. We mix the nitrous oxide with a high percentage of oxygen, and our dentists can easily adjust the level of nitrous oxide to ensure you are comfortable. Nitrous oxide sedation will not make you sleep, but you may feel drowsy and you may not remember all of the details of your visit. With nitrous oxide in Bowling Green, Kentucky, you can rest assured that your dental experience will be relaxing and pleasant.
Nitrous oxide is a safe, mild form of sedation. The effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove the nose mask. You will then be able to safely drive yourself home after your appointment with Drs. Brenda, Gary, and Andy Walden.
