We understand that some patients may experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. To ensure comfort and relaxation during dental procedures, we offer nitrous oxide sedation, commonly known as laughing gas. This safe and effective form of sedation helps alleviate dental anxiety, allowing you to undergo treatment with ease.
How Doe Nitrous Oxide Work?
When you inhale nitrous oxide, it enters your lungs and quickly dissolves into your bloodstream. It then travels to your brain, where it produces a calming effect and reduces anxiety. We administer nitrous oxide through a small mask placed over your nose. This method ensures a comfortable delivery of the gas during your dental procedure. Nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep; instead, it creates a state of deep relaxation while keeping you conscious and able to communicate with your dentist throughout the procedure.
