Sedation with Nitrous Oxide
Riggs Family Dentistry offers light-to-moderate conscious sedation using nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide, which is referred to colloquially as “laughing gas,” helps even the most anxious patients relax. It is breathed in through the nose before the procedure starts, and through the duration of the visit. At the end of the appointment, the gas is turned off; the patient begins breathing normally oxygenated air, and is soon able to drive back to work or home. Nitrous oxide will help make your visit to Riggs Family Dentistry more comfortable and relaxing.
