You will drive yourself to your Dental Appointment as you would with any other dental visit. When you arrive at the dental office, you will be awake and normal. Most patients arrived relaxed, knowing that they will be sedated by Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen sedation during their dental visit.
At your appointment time, you will be escorted to the dental treatment area and seated in the dental chair. When you are comfortable a Mask will be placed over your nose and you will be given pure oxygen.
If you feel cold, you will be covered with a blanket. A small pillow is available for the small of your back. If you desire hearing some relaxing music, a CD player is available. It is our desire that you are fully relaxed and comfortable before, during and after your dental appointment.
The Nitrous Oxygen mixture will be adjusted to a level that is comfortable for you. The mixture will be adjusted throughout your appointment to meet your needs.
your treatment is completed the Nitrous Oxide will be turned off and you
will be given pure Oxygen until you feel completely normal. When the effects
of the Nitrous Oxide have worn off completely, you will feel fully awake
and alert. You will feel comfortable and relaxed and will probably remember
very little about your wonderful dental experience. You will be able to
drive yourself home or do anything else you would do during a normal day
