For patients who wish to remain awake during their procedure, but want a soothing, relaxed dental experience, nitrous oxide may be the answer. Commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide induces a warm, slightly light-headed feeling and an overall sense of relaxation.
Your level of sedation is monitored during your treatment and the gas wears off within a few minutes after the procedure. Patients are generally able to safely drive home after their appointment. Dr. Sadineni and her staff have years of experience administering nitrous oxide, and patients insist it eliminates stress or discomfort.
