Nitrous Oxide (N2O) Sedation Dentistry in Indiana

Are you too afraid of the dentist to get the dental care that you desperately need? You’re not alone. Many people suffer extreme anxiety at the dentist’s office, but N20 sedation dentistry in Indiana can make dental visits easier.

How Can Sedation Dentistry Help?

Sedation dentistry is the dental specialty that helps anxious or fearful patients get the care they need by providing medications that induce varying states of consciousness or a feeling of calmness and safety. Your sedation dentistry options range from mild oral sedation dentistry to full dental anesthesia. Most forms of dental sedation allow you to remain conscious but drowsy. One of the most popular sedatives comes in the form of an inhaled gas called nitrous oxide (N2O). If you’re looking for an anesthesia dentist, we can help. Contact us today to get connected with a great dentist who can transform your smile without causing fear or stress.

What Is Nitrous Oxide Dental Gas?

If you remember inhaling a dentist gas through a mask when you were a child, you’re already familiar with nitrous oxide. It’s a safe and effective sedative gas that is often referred to as laughing gas because of its tendency to make patients giggle. N20 sedation dentistry is one of the most convenient, versatile options. Dentists have been using the gas since the 1800s to reduce both pain and anxiety. If you’re looking for a provider who has experience in sedation dentistry, let us connect you with the perfect laughing gas dentist to meet your needs.

What Makes N20 Sedation Dentistry a Great Choice?

All dental sedation drugs can lessen your anxiety and help combat your fear of dentists, but N20 sedation dentistry offers a few extra benefits. When choosing a sedation option, consider the following:

  • N2O sedation dentistry is safer and more affordable than some other options.
  • After receiving N2O, you can drive yourself home from your appointment almost immediately.
  • If the effects of the gas make you uncomfortable, they can be quickly reversed.
  • It’s appropriate for use in adults and children of all ages.

To experience the benefits of getting N20 sedation dentistry in Indiana, contact us to schedule a professional consultation with an experienced and compassionate laughing gas dentist.

What Does N2O Dentist Gas Do?

When used in sedation dentistry, laughing gas starts to work as soon as you inhale it. Within several minutes, you’ll feel the full effects which may include the following:

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • A sleepy, relaxed feeling
  • Euphoria or excitement
  • Slurred speech
  • Higher pain tolerance
  • An urge to giggle or laugh
  • Warm, tingly or floating sensations

How Long Can You Expect N20 Gas to Last?

Once your dentist removes the nitrous oxide dental mask, the effects of the drug will diminish rapidly with each normal breath. Within about five minutes, all of the N2O should be out of your system, which means that you can return to your everyday activities. Few drugs used in sedation dentistry offer as much control as laughing gas.

Nitrous Sedation Dentistry Cost

Sedation dentistry cost depends on several factors; these include the type of sedative your anesthesia dentist recommends, your personal needs and the length and complexity of your dental procedure. Inhaled sedation dentistry gas is typically less expensive than IV sedation or general anesthesia. When you choose N20 sedation dentistry in Indiana, our skilled dentists will work with you to determine what type of sedation dentistry methods will best fit your needs and your budget. Contact us today to start planning your new, healthy, stress-free smile.
