Nitrous Oxide is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas that you can breathe in. Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is very safe. The patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide. The patient is able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep, not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.
When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Fawcett and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care. Our practice uses high power microscope eye wear to enhance the precision of patient care. Many dentists use air-driven "hand-pieces" (the dental term for "drills"). While acceptable for many procedures, these "whiny sounding" air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentrically; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly. For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces.
