Our friendly orthodontist in Garland, TX specializes in providing anxiety-free dental appointments using nitrous oxide sedation. Learn more about the benefits and details of this innovative technique below.


Nitrous oxide sedation offers numerous benefits for patients who experience dental anxiety. By inhaling a safe and odorless gas, you can expect to feel a sense of relaxation and ease during your dental visit. This method allows you to remain conscious and in control while reducing discomfort and anxiety. Additionally, nitrous oxide sedation has a quick onset and wears off rapidly, allowing you to resume your normal activities immediately after your appointment.

Aside from alleviating anxiety, nitrous oxide sedation can also help patients with sensitive gag reflexes, low pain thresholds, or difficulty sitting still for extended periods. With its effectiveness and versatility, nitrous oxide sedation ensures that our patients receive the dental care they need without unnecessary stress or discomfort.

Ideal Candidates

Nitrous oxide sedation is suitable for a wide range of individuals. If you experience any form of dental anxiety, fear, or discomfort during dental visits, you’re an ideal candidate for this technique. Whether it’s a simple cleaning or a more complex procedure, nitrous oxide sedation can help you feel at ease throughout the appointment.

Additionally, if you have a sensitive gag reflex, difficulty sitting still, or a low pain threshold, nitrous oxide sedation can enhance your experience by minimizing these challenges. Our friendly orthodontist will assess your specific needs and ensure that nitrous oxide sedation is the right choice for you.

What to Expect

Prior to your dental appointment, our team will explain the steps involved in the nitrous oxide sedation process. During the procedure, a small mask will be placed over your nose, and you’ll be instructed to breathe normally. Within minutes, you’ll start to feel the calming effects of nitrous oxide. Our experienced and friendly orthodontist will closely monitor your comfort level throughout the appointment.

It’s important to note that although nitrous oxide sedation induces a relaxed state, you’ll remain conscious and able to communicate with our dental professionals. Once the procedure is complete, a blend of oxygen will be administered, rapidly reversing the effects of nitrous oxide. Within minutes, you’ll be ready to leave our office and resume your daily activities without any restrictions.

    As always, I had the best doctor and superb services at Shifa Dental. I never felt the need to go to any other dentist after coming to this place a couple of years ago. Their attention to details is masterful and coupled with the care for their patients they show is truly wonderful. A big thank to all the people at Shifa Dental.

    It was my first time here and it was a great experience. I have sensitive teeth so they would check in to make sure the cleaning was feeling okay. The staff was very personable and I did not have to wait long. I would highly recommend!
