Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and administered to the patient via a nasal mask. Patients breathe in and out normally as the concentration of nitrous oxide is adjusted to a comfortable level. The patient will remain awake and responsive, but anxiety level typically diminishes. The fee for nitrous oxide sedation depends upon the length of administration time. Many insurance companies will cover it.
Patients often feel much less inhibited about receiving treatment. Many patients report that appointments seem shorter than they actually were. After this short time, the effect of nitrous oxide ceases and the patient quickly recovers. At the end of the procedure, the nitrous oxide is turned off and the patient can return to work or to school right away.
