Offering Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation for Patients in Sun City, AZ

Picture of a dental patient undergoing nitrous oxide dental sedation during a procedure.Do you dread going to the dentist? If so, you’re not alone. Many people experience dental anxiety, but fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem: nitrous oxide dental sedation, which Burns Dentistry offers at our Sun City, Arizona, office. Commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide sedation is regularly used to help patients relax during dental procedures.

What to Expect With Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

If you’ve never undergone nitrous oxide sedation before, you might be unsure what to expect. Before we start working on your teeth, our sedation dentists will administer nitrous oxide gas through a mask. You may feel lightheaded, tingly, or numb, but you’ll still be conscious and able to speak with your treatment team (unlike with general anesthesia, which puts you to sleep).

Immediately following your dental procedure, you may feel slightly disoriented. However, this disorientation will likely resolve within just a few minutes. Our team will carefully observe you to ensure that it’s safe for you to leave the office and return home.

“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.”
