Do you have a sensitive gag reflex, experience fear or anxiety when you enter the dentist’s office, or have a disability that makes sitting in a treatment chair uncomfortable and difficult? Dr. Fitzgerald offers nitrous oxide sedation to help accommodate her patients who have various barriers that keep them from receiving comfortable treatment. To learn whether sedation can help you, don’t hesitate to contact our office!
Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting sedation that our team administers in-office to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable. We administer the sedation, which is a colorless and odorless gas, through a small nose mask that allows you to breathe it in with ease. Within just a minute or two, you’ll begin to feel a euphoric wave wash over you. After the treatment is complete, our team will remove the mask from your nose, and after a few minutes, the complete effects of the sedation should wear off.
