Is Nitrous Oxide Safe for the Elderly?
My mother is 99 and has dementia. At her last visit, the dentist found a very large cavity in her molar. She suggested a crown, root canal or removal. None of these could be done, while mom is conscious. She was already telling the dentist 'she better not be pulling any teeth,' while she did the cleaning. Could take her to an oral surgeon, but is nitrous oxide safe for someone her age? So far, she's not in pain, but I'm trying to explore my options.
