Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. It is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe. It is also safe, and the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. It is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe. It is also safe, and the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide.

While under nitrous oxide, the patient is able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. The patient may experience mild amnesia, or even fall asleep, and have no memory of what happened during their appointment.

There are many advantages to using Nitrous Oxide which include:

  • The sedation level can be altered at any time to increase or decrease sedation.
  • There are no after effects, such as a “hangover”.
  • Inhalation sedation is safe with no side effects to your health (heart and lungs, etc.)
  • Inhalation sedation is very effective at minimizing gagging.
  • It works rapidly. The gas reaches the brain within 20 seconds and in as little as 2-3 minutes you will be relaxed and feel no pain.

Reasons to not use Nitrous Oxide

Those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) should not use nitrous oxide. While there are no other major contraindications to using nitrous oxide, you may want to avoid using it if you have emphysema, exotic chest problems, M.S., a cold or other difficulties with breathing.
It is possible to have a “5 minute trial” of the gas so you can see how you feel under this type of sedation method before moving forward with your procedure.

I had to find a new dentist in 2020. I chose Kewaskum Family Dentistry and Dr. Sara because of word of mouth advertising through my neighbor. Dr. Sara came highly recommended not only for her dentistry skills but also for her treatment with TMD. I had my teeth cleaned and was very impressed with my cleaning. I feel it was thorough as my hygienist counted pockets, which is important to me in knowing the health of my gum tissue. My hygienist educated me on flossing and the angel in which to use my electric toothbrush. Next I had my consultation with Dr. Sara about my TMD. I have struggled with jaw pain, clenching, grinding and damaging my teeth from that resulting in crowns and root canals. The consultation was the most thorough I've experienced in 20 years. I was shown my x-rays and the shifting of my jawbone and in the palpitation I exhibited the pain from constant clenching and grinding. I'm in EXCELLENT care with a powerful treatment plan I'm looking forward to. Everyone at this clinic from the time you walk in the door until you exit has such great energy, professionalism, respect and experience. I would highly recommend this clinic to any age group. Thank you everyone!!!

Absolutely LOVE Kewaskum Family Dentistry. Dr. Sara, Dr. Nick and the staff are absolutely amazing! They talk you through everything they are going to be doing and happily answer all questions thoroughly. I've always experienced anxiety when it came to the dentist until I came here. The environment is welcoming, and there are always smiling faces to greet you. Hands down the BEST place to go for all your dental needs.
