Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation for Patients in Goodyear, AZ

If the thought of going to the dentist makes your pulse quicken and your palms sweat, you may want to consider nitrous oxide dental sedation. Many people find that nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) relieves their dental anxiety and makes the dental treatment process easier and more pleasant.

At Burns Dentistry, we’re proud to offer this service for patients in Goodyear, Arizona, and the surrounding area. We understand that going to the dentist can be a stressful experience for many people, so in addition to nitrous oxide sedation, we also offer oral conscious sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation.

How Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation Used in Dentistry?

Nitrous oxide is a great option for many individuals with dental anxiety because it alters pain and pleasure receptors, producing a euphoric sensation. Here’s what you can expect to happen during your appointment:

  • Your dentist will place a mask over your nose.
  • You’ll start breathing in a mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide.
  • As the nitrous oxide dental sedation begins to take effect, you’ll feel noticeably calmer.
  • Once your dentist is done performing your treatment, they’ll begin supplying you with pure oxygen to flush out any remaining nitrous oxide from your system.

Patients who receive nitrous oxide dental sedation are generally able to drive themselves home from their appointment.

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
