Nitrous Sedation at Center for Implant Dentistry, Fremont

Very good place. I have been going to prestige dental for two years now and I have had a great experience so far. They are very conveniently located and take care of patients very well. There is ample parking in front of the clinic.

Nitrous Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is the mildest form of sedation offered in dentistry today. The mild nature of nitrous oxide should not fool you. This medication is proven to ease anxiety in mildly to moderately nervous patients within moments of delivery. Nitrous oxide sedation is delivered in the form of a gas containing a carefully blended mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists classifies nitrous oxide as minimal sedation. This is because the patient is able to respond normally to verbal or other stimulus, and breathing and cardiovascular functions are unaffected. The sedative takes effect within seconds of inhalation and continues to be effective throughout treatment. As the procedure ends, nitrous is neutralized with oxygen and full alertness is regained.


Nitrous oxide is the most common form of dental sedation due to its suitability for patients of all ages. This sedative may be used for routine care as well as major procedures. At Center for Implant Dentistry, we offer several options for sedation, including oral and IV sedation. Although nitrous oxide is an effective and safe option, it may not be sufficient for a person who is extremely fearful of dental treatment. Those who do choose nitrous oxide sedation experience benefits such as:

  • Fast-acting medication immediately eases tension
  • Appropriate for all ages
  • Nitrous oxide maximizes the effect of local pain medication
  • Patients can communicate with us during treatment
  • No lingering effects after treatment means you can drive home safely or return to work
  • Visits seem to go by very quickly
  • Patients may not remember getting dental treatment at all


Almost anyone is a candidate for nitrous oxide dental sedation. However, it may not be appropriate for individuals with lung conditions or other breathing problems, or those who have recently had eye or ear surgery. Prior to administering any kind of medication, we will review your medical history and discuss potential risks. Additionally, our patients are carefully monitored throughout treatment by dentists who have undergone extensive training in emergency medicine.
