Here at Dr. Fraze, DDS, we are proud to be able to offer nitrous oxide analgesia for our patients who are apprehensive.
Nitrous oxide is a very safe form of sedation. It is inhaled and the effects start within a few seconds. It can be adjusted quickly if a patient is too light or too deep. Also, the affects are reversed quickly with oxygen and it is safe to drive home. It has very little side effects and hardly any effects on the kidneys, liver, brain, and more.
Nitrous oxide makes many people feel happy and warm. It causes a lot of people to laugh so it is often called laughing gas. It is great for sedation when a person is nervous at the dentist. It is also a great pain relief.
Not many dentists use nitrous oxide analgesia anymore. We would be glad to use it if you are extremely nervous or you need some pain relief during your procedure. Our goal is to keep you as relaxed as possible, no matter what procedure is being performed.
Don’t hesitate to contact us today if you have any questions about nitrous oxide or you would like to schedule an appointment. We can be reached at (732) 560-8877.
