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.

They get you in on time, no pain with any of the procedures. And when Gibbs comes in to check on you is the best.

It has been to a dentist in a number of years. They were gentle and explained everything in detail to me. It’s been one visit and I’m glad that I made the switch. I’ll be here for years to come

After a number of terrible experiences at the last 3 dentists, it was a joy to walk into a friendly, clean, office and have a pleasant experience like I was used to in the past. Straight forward, no surprises or weird practices like wanting to have me come back at another time for the cleaning I was expecting. Thank you so much for giving me the peace of mind I've been looking for, and an end to the nightmare I was in.

Great friendly, honest professionals that look out for your best intrest and health. And being greeted by Gibbs is always a great way to start the day:) Shout out to Jenny and Jodi for always checking with insurance before recomending procedures.

My experience at Kewaskum Family Dentistry was exceptional. As a first-time client, I was accorded highly professional treatment throughout the visit.Dr. Klasinski and her staff were uniformly helpful and accommodating. I especially appreciated their willingness to explain their procedures and continuing concern for my comfort.Dr. Klasinski and her team were patient, responsive and transparent. I was treated well in every respect. They delivered quality service and care. I was impressed.
