About Laughing Gas Sedation Dentistry

Did you know that dental anxiety is actually quite common? About 15% of Americans avoid the dentist each year due to their fear. With laughing gas sedation, we can provide a more calm, relaxing experience without completely putting the patient under. With laughing gas sedation, a tiny mask is placed over the nose which delivers an oxygen and laughing gas mixture. After just a few minutes, patients begin to feel euphoric, relaxed and sometimes “heavy”. Once your treatment has been completed, laughing gas can be stopped and within a few minutes you will feel back to normal and continue your day.

Benefits of Laughing Gas Sedation

When it comes to providing relief from dental anxiety and phobias, laughing gas sedation has many benefits, which include:

  • Laughing gas sedation dentistry does not completely put the patient to sleep, patients can still communicate and follow directions.
  • Laughing gas sedation does not require the patient to be driven to and from their appointment.
  • Laughing gas can provide a calm experience for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety.
  • Laughing gas can reduce the gag reflex.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe for Children?
