Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative used to simply ease your anxieties during dental treatment, and lasts only as long as you are breathing in the nitrous oxide. With this sedative, patients are still conscious and aware of what’s happening, but they feel more relaxed when they otherwise may be nervous. For a safer and more comfortable treatment, nitrous oxide may be right for you. To learn more about nitrous oxide in Houston, Texas, and to schedule your appointment with our dentist, we invite you to contact us by calling us at 713-789-1225.
