Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

This type of sedation is very easy and straightforward and involves breathing in a mixture of nitrous oxide (often known as laughing gas) and oxygen. A small rubber inhaler is placed over the patient's nose and adjusted so that the patient breaths through it. It begins to work within 3 to 5 minutes and at the end of the appointment, the effect of the N2O is reversed in minutes. Most patients experience an initial feeling of lightheadedness, which gradually leads to a feeling of overall relaxation and well-being.

The advantages of nitrous oxide are its rapid onset, and it is one of the safest forms of sedation available for both adults and children.

Our office is equipped with nitrous oxide and our doctors and staff are highly trained in the safe administration and management of nitrous oxide. Please feel free to discuss this option further with the doctor.
