Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For many patients, due to past experiences or preconceptions, going to the dentist can be a bit unnerving. At Navo Family Dental, we understand and make it our goal to create an environment that is calm and relaxed for our patients, and we do this by offering sedation dentistry. As the sedation dentistry experts in Little Elm, our phobic patients are fully comfortable and relaxed for their appointment. We administer sedation through nitrous oxide (laughing gas) on the needs of the patient. TV on the ceiling along during the treatment relaxes our patients, often to the point of deep relaxation through the entire process, cutting out anxiety and worry, and leaving little memory of the procedure at all!
This is most commonly known as laughing gas and is administered via a nasal mask during your visit. Patients that undergo nitrous oxide sedation feel very relaxed during their visit. Once treatment is complete, the nasal mask is removed and the effects of nitrous wear off almost immediately. Patients that undergo this type of sedation are able to drive home and resume normal activities.
