Your comfort is an important part of our care. That is why we offer nitrous oxide sedation in Apple Valley, Minnesota, for our patients.
What Is Nitrous Oxide?
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedation inhaled through the nose as a vapor. This sedation option is used for children and adults and can help you feel calm and relaxed during treatment. As a conscious sedation method, you will remain awake but comfortable during your appointment and will feel the effects wear off quickly after the nose mask is removed. This makes nitrous oxide a safe choice for patients who need to drive themselves to and from their appointments.
Nitrous oxide is also an excellent option for patients who experience dental anxiety. Its mild nature and calming effects help create a dental experience where you feel comfortable and at ease. Additionally, this sedation method is one of the most common and affordable sedation options offered in dentistry.
Dr. Fred Hermanson and our team are happy to answer any questions you have about our sedation methods and invite you to call Smiles by Design at 952-432-9155 if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a visit with our dentist.
