One of the best benefits of nitrous oxide sedation is that the effects wear off quickly, allowing you to continue on with your day as you normally would after your appointment. In order to minimize your chances of experiencing dizziness or a headache after undergoing sedation, we’ll have you breathe in pure oxygen for a few minutes after we turn off the nitrous oxide.
