Do you always feel like canceling your dental appointment at the last second? Does stepping foot into a dental office make you feel nervous? Nitrous oxide can take care of that for you, making you feel relaxed and at ease throughout the duration of your appointment. Our Pottstown Dentistry team always wants you to feel comfortable when you see us

What Is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a sedative gas that is sweet-smelling, non-irritating, and colorless. While you will still be awake and able to communicate, the gas will make you feel pleasant and care-free – perfect for those who have a fear of the dentist.

We administer the gas by gently placing a small mask over your face. It emits a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that you’ll slowly breathe in through your nose. After about five minutes, you’ll be fully sedated and ready for your procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide has many incredible benefits, even if you don’t have dentophobia. Some of what you can expect includes:

  • A pain-free treatment
  • A completely safe appointment
  • No “hangover” effect
  • Minimizes gagging
  • Works fast

Is Nitrous Oxide Right for Me?

While nitrous oxide is very safe, there are some circumstances where we recommend against it, mainly for people who have difficulties breathing. Some examples include those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, exotic chest problems, or multiple sclerosis.
