About Nitrous Oxide in Canton, GA

A premier dental experience is what we give our patients at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA, meaning that we use cutting-edge technologies and techniques to help our patients get a chic smile without the added stress or discomfort. We often meet with patients who would like to have sexy teeth but are nervous because of dentophobia (fear of the dentist). If fear is keeping you from achieving your aesthetic goals, MINT dentistry can help. Our advanced practice in Canton, GA uses sedation methods, like nitrous oxide gas, for dental procedures and services to help patients remain comfortable during their appointments. Nitrous oxide (N2O) gas is an effective sedation method that can help you to safely relax without a groggy feeling after. Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide sedation is used by the board-certified doctors at MINT dentistry to keep you comfortable but still be conscious. Schedule a consultation with a member of our team to get more information about using nitrous oxide gas during your appointment.

Who Is a Candidate for Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation?

One of the most popular sedation dentistry techniques comes in the use of nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. Nitrous oxide sedation can be safely used on most patients. Before nitrous oxide gas is used, your team of dental professionals will go through your current medications, medical history, as well as any questions or concerns you may have to ensure that nitrous oxide is a good choice. N2O sedation at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA may be offered for most procedures and is often combined with local anesthesia to make you fully comfortable. Nitrous oxide sedation can also be used for dental exams and cleanings if you have anxieties or fears about the dentist that make these appointments stressful for you. Nitrous oxide gas may not be recommended if you have difficulty breathing through your nose, have extreme dentophobia, have respiratory illnesses, or have certain other conditions.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Gas Work?

Being totally comfortable is a part of the experience at MINT dentistry, which is why we give you Beats headphones, MINT sunglasses, and allow you to relax back into one of our massaging treatment chairs. When you are settled in and ready, a nasal hood will be placed over your face to administer the nitrous oxide gas. As you gently inhale the gas, it should start to take effect quickly. Your team will watch your vital signs and response to the gas, adjusting the volume as needed during the procedure so you remain relaxed. It's normal to feel tingling in your arms and legs, plus a feeling of vibration, warmth, or mild euphoria as the gas begins to work. Nitrous oxide is typically combined with local anesthesia, such as lidocaine, to numb your mouth in the areas being treated. Once your procedure is complete, the gas will be turned off and you should quickly come out from the effects of the sedation.

What Can I Expect Following Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Recovery after laughing gas is quick, as it starts to leave your body after a few minutes. You should be able to drive and get back to your regular day after your appointment. Side effects are uncommon, but you might experience temporary chills, sweating, headaches, nausea, vomiting, or fatigue. Contact our MINT team if you have concerning side effects. To lessen your risk of vomiting and nausea, we recommend eating a small snack before your procedure and then waiting a minimum of three hours after you leave before eating a large meal.
