At Dentistry by Design, helping patients have a positive experience during each and every dental appointment is very important to us. That’s why Dr. Luke Lumpkin offers nitrous oxide sedation as a helpful aid that can create a calmer, more relaxing atmosphere during the treatment process. Our team is likely to recommend sedation for patients who fall under the following categories:
Nitrous oxide is a clear, odorless gas that patients breathe in through a nasal mask. Our team will carefully monitor the amount of gas you’re receiving to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible. After the procedure is complete, the mask is removed and the effects of the gas wear off very quickly. This means that patients can return to their daily routines right away without the inconvenient need for an escort. Contact our Bartlesville, OK practice today if you’d like to learn more about nitrous oxide sedation, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment with our team.
