Dr. Mirci and Dr. Reynolds provide nitrous oxide to help you relax and feel at ease during your appointment. Nitrous oxide is a great option for anyone with mild dental anxiety or fear, as it helps you relax quickly and will wear off just as fast. We invite you to call Mirci Dental at 801-486-1155 to learn more about the benefits of nitrous oxide in Salt Lake City, Utah, and schedule your consultation with our caring dentists to find out if this type of sedation is right for you.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, may be a good solution for you if you become anxious while thinking about an upcoming treatment or a visit to our office. This type of sedation consists of a nitrogen-oxygen mixture which is inhaled through a nose mask. As you inhale, the sedative takes effect to create a relaxed sensation so that you can receive your treatment without difficulty. Some patients have reported a euphoric or “floating” sensation while using nitrous oxide. After your treatment is complete, the nose mask will be removed and the effects of the sedation will wear off within a few minutes. You will be able to safely and legally drive yourself home.
Nitrous oxide is a type of conscious sedation. While you will be relaxed and may experience some memory loss of your actual appointment, you will be awake and able to respond to our dentists while receiving treatment. We may recommend nitrous oxide for anyone who suffers from dental anxiety or fear, dislikes the sounds and sights of the dental office, or who has difficulty receiving treatment without also receiving sedation.
If you receive nitrous oxide, our dentists will follow-up with you after your appointment to make sure that you are recovering well.
To learn more about nitrous oxide and find out if it is right for you, please call our office and make an appointment with one of our dentists.
