Nitrous Oxide Sedation
(Laughing Gas Relaxation Dentistry)

Nitrous Oxide or "Laughing Gas" is one of the safest forms of sedation available.   It can take the anxiety out of most routine and long dental procedures like cleanings and root canals. Non-allergenic and non-irritating, most patients feel the onset effects within minutes which are completely reversed within about 5 minutes of gas termination. This complete reversal allows you to safely drive home or go to work right after your appointment!
Almost anyone can have nitrous oxide treatment. We can vary the depth of sedation depending on your level of anxiety. The gas also tends to reduce gag reflexes and saliva flow. Most importantly, you will bask in a feeling of relaxation as we care for you in the comfort of our office and our team of dental professionals.  For patients with extreme dental fear or anxiety, we offer I.V sedation.

The gas is administered through a simple rubber hood that rests on your nose providing a feeling of numbness, security, and warmth.  At or near the end of your treatment, we will provide you with 100% oxygen so you will feel completely normal within 5-10 minutes. At that point, you are 100% ready to independently carry on your life with your new smile. At Fraccaro Dental Group we care about your comfort and well-being.
