When patients visit Franklin Dental Center, we always strive to go above and beyond to make them feel comfortable. Even still, we know that some patients will need extra help staying calm and pain free during their dental visit. That’s why we offer gentle, effective nitrous oxide sedation in a number of situations, including:
Nitrous oxide is a sedative inhaled through the nose. Patients who choose nitrous oxide sedation will wear a nasal mask during treatments. The effects of nitrous oxide take over quickly, and we are able to adjust the dosage as needed to keep patients completely comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear away as quickly as they set in, so daily activities can be resumed immediately following treatment.
