How Does Dental Sedation Work
Relaxing gas can be used for nearly every type of dental procedure, including routine cleanings! If you’re feel anxiety about seeing the dentist, relaxing gas is a great way to help calm nerves without any lasting side effects. The gas wears off very quickly!
Inhaling relaxing gas takes about two to three minutes to feel its effects. You may feel tingly or numb, relaxed and calm. You will still be able to talk and respond to the dentist when needed. After the procedure, the effects will wear off in a few minutes and most patients are able to safely drive themselves home!
