|Your Comfort In Mind
At Crowton Dental, we understand that some patients have had traumatic experiences in dentistry or have other anxieties about their treatment. Your Ogden, Utah dentist strives to make each patient comfortable and to meet your individual needs. For our patients with anxiety, sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide may be the answer.
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option Dr. Crowton may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions he may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for you at your next appointment.
