The Nitrous Oxide Administration Process
During your dental appointment, our dentist will discuss your anxiety levels and any concerns you have about the procedure. They will explain the process in detail if nitrous oxide is a suitable option.
A small mask is placed over your nose once you're comfortable in the dental chair. The mask delivers a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen to inhale. As you breathe in the gas, you'll feel a sense of relaxation and euphoria. Our dentist in Gulfport, MS, will monitor your response and adjust the gas mixture if needed.
The dental procedure is performed while you remain relaxed and comfortable. You can communicate with your dentist throughout the process. Once the procedure is complete, the supply of nitrous oxide is stopped. The effects wear off quickly, allowing you to recover and resume your regular activities.
