If you are one of the many people who is afraid of going to the dentist, you should know you are in good hands at Texas Teeth in Mesquite, Texas. We understand your concerns and that’s why we offer nitrous oxide for our patients so that they can experience relaxation and comfort during their dental treatment.

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and light anesthetic that is normally used during more serious dental treatments such as a root canal or extraction. After inhaling the nitrous oxide through the nose, you will be dulled to any pain without being put to sleep. You can retain all of your awareness during a treatment after a dose of nitrous oxide.

How Sedation Works:
After being seated comfortably in our dental chair, a small mask is affixed over the nose. After breathing in for several minutes, the oxide will begin to relax the body and prepare you for treatment.

How You Will Feel:
Nitrous oxide will cause your body to feel light-headed and tingly. Some people have said it causes a sensation of heaviness. You will be relaxed, carefree, and calm during your visit. After the mask is removed, these effects are short-lived so you will be safe to drive after your appointment.

We at Texas Teeth want you to feel comfortable during your appointment. Please call Texas Teeth today at 972-270-2062 to learn more about how dental sedation can benefit you.
