Nitrous Oxide
Chicago, IL

Woman under conscious sedation at dentist office in River Forest, IL.Taking proper care of your mouth is essential for keeping it healthy and preventing serious oral health issues. In addition to care at home, it is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned and examined at least twice a year. If oral health issues do occur, treatment is needed right away. However, if the thought of dental care, even routine cleanings, and exams, makes you feel nervous, you may avoid getting any type of professional care. This can lead to worsening issues that then require more invasive, more expensive treatments later. At Cameo Dental Specialists, we can help you to feel more relaxed, allowing us to perform your necessary treatments, with nitrous oxide sedation.

What Is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a mild form of conscious sedation that most people know better by the name of laughing gas. It is the mildest form of sedation available and is provided to help take the edge off when you feel nervous. Nitrous oxide is an inhaled sedative that is mixed with oxygen and is administered through a small mask worn over your nose. You simply breathe in through your nose and begin to feel almost instantly relaxed. Nitrous oxide also helps to raise your pain tolerance and reduce your gag reflex so that we can perform your treatments safely and effectively. This particular type of sedation is ideal for those who experience only a small amount of nervousness.

Why Nitrous Oxide?

If you feel even the slightest bit nervous about going to the dentist, even for a routine cleaning and exam, you may avoid going. Even if your mouth seems healthy, there may be an issue lurking that is not exhibiting any symptoms. Alternatively, you might just be noticing symptoms, but they do not seem that serious. Ignoring dental care can lead to serious issues. Most oral health issues do not disappear on their own. They only tend to get worse over time, which can lead to the need for more invasive treatments later. With nitrous oxide, we can help you relax and feel completely at ease while we perform your necessary procedures.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?

Nitrous oxide is incredibly simple and straightforward. When you sit down in the chair, we place a small mask over your nose. We then turn on the nitrous oxide and oxygen. As you inhale the gas, it goes to work almost instantly, enabling you to feel relaxed and comfortable. When your procedure is over, the nitrous oxide is shut off, but the oxygen is left on for a few extra minutes. This is done to help ensure all of the nitrous oxide has left your system. The effects wear off very quickly, and you are even able to drive yourself home in most cases.

The Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

There are several benefits associated with nitrous oxide. These benefits include
•  No needles or medications are needed.
•  Fast-acting. Sedation goes to work almost immediately. It wears off quickly as well.
•  Sedation levels can be adjusted as necessary to avoid inhaling too much.

Is Nitrous Oxide Safe?

Nitrous oxide is both incredibly safe and very effective. It is the mildest, and safest, form of sedation. Nitrous oxide also has no lingering side effects once it has worn off.

With nitrous oxide, we can help you to feel more relaxed and comfortable, enabling us to provide you with your necessary care, whether it is a dental cleaning and exam, performing a root canal, dental implant or any other treatments.
