Nitrous oxide is a sedation treatment that works safely on a variety of patients. From young children to older adults, nitrous oxide helps patients feel at ease. We will often recommend this treatment for patients who feel nervous about undergoing dental treatment. Learn more about nitrous oxide in Anchorage, Alaska, and contact Clear Dental today!
Nitrous oxide is commonly known as laughing gas and helps decrease nervousness, anxiety and discomfort during treatment. It is administered through a mask, allowing the patient to inhale the medication right before treatment. The sedation works almost immediately, and the effects wear off almost immediately after the mask is removed. This allows adult patients to drive themselves home after their appointment and there is no need for monitoring after their treatment.
When you plan your dental treatment or procedure, ask our dentists about your options for dental sedation. In addition to nitrous oxide, we also provide IV sedation and oral conscious sedation at our practice. Feel free to contact our office at (907) 313-2433 at any time before your treatment or to schedule a consultation with our dentists. We are always willing to answer our patients’ questions and help them feel comfortable visiting our dentists for dental treatment.
