Nitrous Oxide & Oral Sedation

Remain Calm And Relaxed During Your Dental Visit!

Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from regular dental care any longer! If you or any family member has a high level of anxiety about visiting the dentist, hates needles, hates the noises and smells associated with a dental office, they may be a candidate for sleep or sedation dentistry. At our office, we offer our patients inhalation (laughing gas), or oral sedation (Ativan or Triazolam).  

Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide (N2O), is an odorless, colorless gas that can be inhaled through a small mask placed over the nose. The gas, often pleasantly scented with vanilla or mint, works rapidly. Patients report feeling relaxed, calm, and happy during use. As its nickname implies, laughing gas can sometimes make people feel giddy or giggly, but without losing control.

Sedation dentistry will allow you to remain calm, relaxed and comfortable during any dental procedure you may need. Sedation Dentistry will immensely benefit you if you have experienced any of the following while receiving dental treatment:

With laughing gas, Dr. Dvorkin is able to perform many procedures on previously anxious patients helping them to feel no pain or discomfort. Laughing gas has the added advantage of being completely reversible, with no lingering grogginess. When a procedure is completed, patients are given oxygen to breathe for a few minutes and the effect of the sedation is completely reversed.

Please feel free to contact us anytime with questions or concerns about your sedation dentistry for you or your family member. We can be reached by phone at 506-458-9186 or email at
