What Is Nitrous Oxide?

If you've been living with tooth pain or other dental problems because of anxiety about going to the dentist, you may be a good fit for nitrous oxide sedation at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC. Our office in Grand Ledge, MI provides nitrous oxide sedation for both longer procedures and to comfort patients with dental fears and anxieties during regular appointments. Nitrous oxide (N2O) gas is a simple sedation option that can help you relax safely during your procedure. Also called laughing gas, N2O can be administered by our staff to keep you awake while being completely relaxed. Set up a consultation with Dr. Todd K. Baum for more information on the use of N2O sedation during your dental visits.

How Is Nitrous Oxide Used for Dental Treatments?

Nitrous oxide has been used as a dental sedative for more than a century and is trusted as a low-risk treatment for both adults and children. Before nitrous oxide gas is used, Dr. Baum will go through your medical history, current medications, and concerns to be sure that N2O is indeed a fit for you. N2O sedation may be used for advanced or easy procedures paired with local anesthesia to help decrease your pain. This option can also be used for fear or anxieties about dental work that prevent you from keeping your regular dental appointments. Nitrous oxide gas may not be suitable if you have difficulty breathing through your nose, extreme phobias, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other similar conditions.
