Surgical Extraction With Nitrous Oxide

At Dentists at Woodway, we understand that the thought of a surgical tooth extraction can be daunting. That is why we offer surgical extractions with nitrous oxide sedation, a method that ensures a more comfortable and less stressful experience for our patients. Our skilled dentist and team is committed to providing you with a safe, effective and anxiety-free procedure.

What is Surgical Extraction and Nitrous Oxide?

Surgical tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a tooth that may be impacted, severely damaged or causing overcrowding. We use nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, to help relax patients during the procedure. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is inhaled through a small mask over the nose. It helps to ease anxiety, reduce discomfort and make the experience more pleasant.

The Process of Surgical Extraction With Nitrous Oxide

When you visit our office for a surgical extraction with nitrous oxide, we begin with a comprehensive assessment of your dental health and discuss the necessity of the procedure. On the day of the extraction, we administer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, through a mask to help relax you and alleviate any discomfort or anxiety. Dr. Jim D. Nored will carefully carry out the extraction, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide fade quickly post-procedure, allowing for a swift recovery and we provide clear aftercare instructions to guide you through the healing process.

Benefits of Using Nitrous Oxide for Surgical Extractions

  • Anxiety Reduction: Nitrous oxide is an excellent option for patients who experience dental anxiety or fear.
  • Pain Management: It helps in managing pain and discomfort during the procedure.
  • Quick Recovery: The effects of nitrous oxide wear off rapidly after the mask is removed, with no prolonged drowsiness.
  • Safe for All Ages: Nitrous oxide is a safe sedation method for both adults and children.
