Nitrous Oxide

If you are nervous for your dental appointment and would like light sedation, our excellent dentists may suggest nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide, known more commonly as “laughing gas,” helps you relax and stay calm throughout your appointment. To learn more about nitrous oxide in Bozeman, Montana, or to make and appointment with Dr. Eric Nygard, call Shine Dental at 406.587.2201 today!

Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N20) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.

Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentists and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
