Would you like to get your dental treatment done while you are completely relaxed and your mind is at ease?
Laughing Gas: is one of the safest and mildest forms of sedation for dentistry. It is a clear, sweet-smelling gas delivered through a small nose mask in conjunction with oxygen. We control the amount of sedation you receive so you stay relaxed during your procedure.
It is not intended to put you to sleep; you will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the laughing gas. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs; some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable.
Laughing Gas enters and leaves your body quickly, so you can drive yourself home from your appointment. It is so safe that we can even use it on kids to make their appointments more relaxing and productive.
Patients who are pregnant or have certain respiratory illnesses should not use Laughing Gas. We will take a full medical history prior to any sedation to ensure that it is safe for you.
