Nitrous Gas Dentistry

Nitrous Gas Dentistry in Round Rock, TX!

Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” administered during a dental procedure helps relax patients who have a severe fear of needles and dentists, or have previously had traumatic experiences with a dentist. Nitrous is very useful for those who have difficulty getting numb, or those who cannot handle the sensory input like smells and noises present in a dentist’s office.

The dentist will administer the sedative gas through a mask that fits over your nose. As the patient breathes normally, the nitrous oxide, mixed with oxygen, helps you relax. Studies show that using nitrous oxide as a light sedative during dental procedures makes patients perceive less pain.

It is not intended to put you to sleep. Patients remain conscious throughout the procedure and retain the ability to respond to questions and directions from the dentist.

Safety & Effectiveness Of Nitrous Oxide

Studies have shown that Nitrous Oxide is safe and only has a temporary sedative effect on both children and adults. Dentists have been using nitrous oxide since 1844. It is the most tested and probably safest sedative in dentistry.

Most patients tolerate it well, and it is non-allergenic. The dentist can adjust the concentration for individual requirements. Patients remain conscious and maintain all natural reflexes when breathing the mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. The effects of the gas wear off within minutes of discontinuing the flow through the mask.

Experience Of Nitrous Oxide

Your dentist places a small nose mask on you and instructs you to breathe normally. You’ll feel the effect immediately upon inhaling, and your dentist will adjust the oxygen/nitrous mix until you are comfortable. Most people experience a sense of relaxation and a feeling that time has altered.

The effects of Nitrous Oxide wear off very quickly. Within minutes after the gas flow has stopped, people report feeling back to normal. Adult patients who have been administered nitrous oxide are capable of driving and returning to work after a brief observation period. Children can return to full activities after a brief observation as well.

Complicating Factors

Sinus congestion can limit the effectiveness of nitrous oxide because your ability to breathe through your nose is impaired. As always, tell your dentist about all medical conditions and medications you are taking.

Ask Your Dentist

Ask your dentist about using nitrous oxide during your procedure if you are tense, have dental phobias, have an easily triggered gag reflex, or are difficult to numb. The American Dental Association affirms that it is a safe and effective means of managing pain and anxiety in dentistry when used appropriately.

Dr. Yoon Is the very best!!! I always had a gap between my 2 front teeth that has always bothered me for my whole life. He helped close it perfectly and it looks so natural. Plus the cost of the whole procedure was so affordable! I will never go to another dentist again. He’s manners, true care and attention to detail is beyond superb. I’m so grateful to him and staff, just an overall awesome experience for me. Thank you so much🤗

I had the best experience at Clearview Dental. I came in for a regular cleaning and found out I had a few cavities. I am a little anxious when visiting the dentist. They were very understanding and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire procedure. They also have the best bedside manner I’ve had at any Dr. Office. The entire staff was friendly and energetic. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend making an appointment.

This entire dental office team is amazing! From the moment I walk through the door to the moment I leave, I am treated with professionalism, sincerity and kindness. Each team member I have encountered is top-notch, both friendly and professional. Dr. Nguyen, is without question, the best dentist! She CARES. She is thorough and has high standards— clearly loves what she does— ensuring comfort from start to finish and that her work is done right. I don’t care where I live, I will drive or fly to ensure she remains my dentist. Don’t hesitate for one moment. Pick up the phone and schedule your next dental appointment with Clearview Dental, you will not regret it.
