Along with oxygen, nitrous oxide is very useful in dentistry to reduce the anxiety level of our most nervous patients. Unlike general anesthetics, sedation using nitrous oxide lets patient be conscious throughout the duration of the procedure.
Rest assured, this sedative agent has no risks for the health and is fully eliminated from your body shortly after the procedure. Also, even the youngest patients can use it.
If you have any questions at all about sedation with nitrous oxide, the Alain Cyr Clinic team will be pleased to provide you with further information!
