How does it work?
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous Oxide is one of the safest methods of sedation available in dentistry to deal with dental anxiety and discomfort. It can be used with adults as well as children. It has a calming and comforting effect while allowing you to be in total control and awake through the procedures. Thus, you will be able to communicate well with us throughout the treatment. Additionally, it helps you feel as if time passes more quickly.
With IV Sedation, you would be relaxed and have little or no memory of the experience. Our dentists in a presence of a registered nurse monitor vital signs carefully using an electronic monitoring device to ensure safety.
