Unfortunately, there are times when the fear and apprehension of getting a dental treatment can prevent someone from receiving the dental care they require. In order to ease and diminish the stress of some procedures, we offer sedation.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, works extremely rapidly, reaching the brain within 20 seconds. The pain-killing and relaxation properties develop after approximately 2 or 3 minutes. The depth of the sedation can be altered from moment to moment. This feature enables the person who administers the gas to either decrease or increase the depth of sedation. This is the unique benefit of Nitrous oxide. With IV sedation for instance, it is easy to deepen the sedation level but harder to lessen it. Laughing gas offers you an almost instant option.
