What is nitrous oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a form of sedation utilized at our dental office to make sure you have a pain-free, relaxing experience each time you visit Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, our kind dentist. We recognize that many patients experience dental phobia, or fear of the dentist. Whether it is the sights and sounds of a dental office or you are simply apprehensive about beginning multiple treatments, nitrous oxide can be an important part of your treatment plan. We are pleased to offer excellent nitrous oxide in Seattle, Washington to help our patients feel confident in the friendly, caring service they can expect to receive at our dental office.

How will nitrous oxide make me feel?

Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through your nose to produce a pleasant, comfortable feeling. Many of our patients experience feelings of euphoria and often do not remember the treatment process at all. However, you will remain fully conscious during the treatment process, which means you will be able to communicate with our team about how you are feeling and remain in full control of your body and mind. The side effects of nitrous oxide also wear off quickly and should be fully gone by the time you walk out of our office.
