Nitrous Oxide for Dental Procedures
Experienced Dentists Serving Atlanta & Marietta, GA
Our Marietta & Atlanta dental specialists at The Szikman Dental Group, P.C.
are dedicated to giving you the most beautiful and radiant smile possible.
But we know that sometimes, in order to achieve the smile you want, you
may have to undergo some routine, but uncomfortable, procedures. These
procedures, while not necessarily painful, can induce extreme nervousness
and anxiety for most adults and children alike.
We want our patients to be as comfortable as possible during their dental
procedures. That is why we use a gas called nitrous oxide to help reduce
anxiety levels and prevent further discomfort for our patients.
Why choose nitrous oxide?
It’s safe and easy – All the patient needs to do is inhale the nitrous oxide (which
feels like regular breathing) to be put into a state of conscious sedation,
which is simply a more relaxed state of being. This treatment is also
completely safe to use for children as well, who often face anxiety in
the dental chair.
It has versatile doses – Nitrous oxide can be used to relieve stress and anxiety, but also
to increase your tolerance to discomfort during your dental procedure.
The amount of the gas that is administered to you can be increased or
lessened depending on your needs and comfort.
Nitrous oxide doesn’t need “wear-off” time – Once your procedure is complete, your lungs will be flushed with
oxygen, leaving less than a one percent trace of nitrous oxide. This means
that you will not need someone to escort you home or wait in the chair
after your procedure like you would with some anesthesia.
We strive to maintain the greatest level of comfort possible during your
dental procedures. We invest only in the most advanced technology and
high-quality materials to make your visit pleasant and stress-free.
