Sedation Dentistry: Nitrous Oxide
At Churchill Smiles Dentistry we offer nitrous oxide sedation, more commonly known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is administered by breathing it in through a nose mask and is used throughout the whole procedure. There are few side effects from nitrous oxide, some numbness or tingling may be felt. After the procedure is done, you will be able to go home, however, accompanied by a responsible adult.
Why use nitrous oxide?
Patients suffering from dental fear, anxiety, strong gag reflexes, and other emotional feelings associated with the dentist may find calm and peace of mind with sedation dentistry. Dental sedation can accompany most dental procedures, such as dental cleanings, dental extractions or dental implants.
