Some people would rather endure the agony of a toothache rather than step foot in a dentist’s office, while others simply desire relaxation during an appointment. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option Dr. Christopher Emuedue at Greenville Family Dentistry may offer to patients to help make them more comfortable during certain procedures. If you are a candidate for sedation, our staff at Big Smiles Family Dentistry is here to make you feel as calm and comfortable as possible.
Nitrous oxide is the most commonly used form of sedation dentistry. It is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. It is not intended to put you to sleep. Therefore, you will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Emuedue may have for you. When nitrous oxide is being administered you will breathe normally through your nose and within a few short minutes begin to feel the effects.
If you have questions about our sedation options, please give us a call. To learn more about the services we provide at our office, visit www.greenvillefamilydentistrytx.com for more information.
