Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Our dentists may recommend nitrous oxide sedation to help manage dental anxiety so that you can receive the treatments you need. This mild sedative is a good option for patients of all ages, allowing you to feel completely at ease during your care. Call North Dental Professionals to make an appointment with Dr. Paul Chaiken or Dr. Robert Kurtz and learn more about nitrous oxide sedation in Chicago and Skokie, Illinois.
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N2O) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentists and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
