Laughing Gas Sedation
Many people avoid going to the dentist because of the fear of dental procedures. We will help you overcome your dental anxiety and regain your confidence about visiting the dentist.
Nitrous oxide (also referred to as laughing gas) is a safe, effective technique to calm your fear of the dental visit. It is a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide. When inhaled, it is absorbed by the body and has a calming effect.
You will smell a sweet, pleasant aroma and experience a sense of well-being and relaxation. This method of anxiety-free dentistry sedation allows you to relax during your treatment, and resume your normal activities after your appointment!
- Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry and has very few side effects and risks.
- Nitrous oxide is non-addictive, and you will remain fully conscious throughout treatment.
- Administration is comfortable and painless, involving no more than a mask over the nose. This makes it an excellent option for children with dental anxieties or individuals with mental or physical disabilities.
- Feelings of calm and relaxation are felt almost immediately, and breathing pure oxygen for several minutes after treatment completely reverses the effects.
During your visit, we can discuss and create your personalized treatment plan for a relaxing and worry free dental care experience at our clinics.
Whether you require a single filling or are looking for a complete smile makeover, anxiety-free dentistry can help you achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible.
