Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation Is Available at Our Sun City West, AZ, Office

Picture of a dental patient undergoing nitrous oxide dental sedation during a procedure.Burns Dentistry—a trusted practice with a team possessing 100+ years of combined experience—proudly offers nitrous oxide dental sedation for patients in Sun City West, Arizona. Nitrous oxide is an excellent option for many people who experience dental anxiety, as it helps them feel calm and relaxed throughout the duration of their procedure, and our team is highly experienced with administering this form of sedation.

How Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation Used in Dentistry?

As noted above, dentists commonly use nitrous oxide (also referred to as “laughing gas”) to help patients relax during dental procedures. At the beginning of an appointment, a sedation dentist will place a mask over the patient’s nose and start administering nitrous oxide gas. Patients often report feeling:

  • Lightheaded
  • Tingly
  • Numb

Notably, unlike general anesthesia, nitrous oxide dental sedation does not put the patient to sleep. Instead, the patient remains awake and able to speak throughout the procedure. Afterwards, they may experience slight disorientation, but they should feel normal again within just a few minutes.

“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.”
