Nitrous Oxide Laughing Gas
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) is a form of sedation using a light gas that you breathe. It is not as strong as IV sedation, so it is recommended for those with mild to moderate anxiety. You will remain conscious for the procedure, but any tension and anxiety will fade away. You will be able to talk and breathe on your own during the procedure as well. What can be a nerve-racking experience for some is morphed into a relaxing experience. There is no hangover side effects like IV sedation.
After the procedure you will even be able to drive yourself home since nitrous oxide leaves your body as you breath so you are normal a few minutes after the gas is removed. If you have been fretting having dental work done, call us to learn about our anxiety free options for dentistry.
