Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide (also commonly known as “laughing gas”) is a safe and effective sedative method for helping patients feel relaxed during dental treatment. Dr. Knight will carefully monitor this process so as to ensure that you’re receiving the right dosage. Within a few minutes, patients should feel very content and calm.
The biggest benefit of nitrous oxide is that effects wear off just as quickly as they begin! Meaning patients can return to work, run errands, and even drive themselves home following treatment – no downtime required.
A preliminary consultation with Dr. Knight is needed to determine whether or not nitrous oxide sedation is the best option available for your specific circumstances. To schedule this visit or ask any questions you may have, contact our Fairhope, AL office today.
