Questions and Answers

Question: What happens if the nitrous oxide suddenly wears off? Am I going to stop feeling relaxed?

Answer: Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about this. You will receive a steady stream of sedation that we can customize throughout the procedure, since we provide the sedative through a mask. You will remain relaxed and comfortable the entire time.

Question: How are you going to be able to perform the entire procedure if I’m wearing a mask? Will it get in the way?

Answer: Nope, it won’t be a problem at all. It’s a mask that we place just over your nose. As a result, it doesn’t get in the way of your mouth or of our ability to navigate around your smile.

Question: Sometimes I can feel a little bit claustrophobic. Is the mask going to make me feel closed in?

Answer: No. The mask is modern and small, so you will hardly notice it. You’ll breathe as you normally do, while the nitrous oxide instantly helps you feel relaxed.
