We know that visiting the dentist can provoke anxiety in some adults and children. Laughing Gas will help you and your child to relax and will make your dental visit stress free.
What is Laughing Gas?
Laughing gas is actually nitrous oxide, a colourless, odourless gas that is mixed with oxygen and commonly used as a sedative. It works very quickly and also leaves the system quickly when your dental procedure is done, making it a very safe choice for relaxing adults and children.
How does it work?
Laughing gas is administered with a small mask that we place over your nose. We use a system that mixes and accurately dispenses the right mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen, which will quickly put you or your child at ease. Patients report feeling light-headed and extremely calm and relaxed. The gas will be used during your entire procedure. Once we have finished your dental work, the gas is turned off and you will quickly feel like your normal self again.
If you’re anxious about visiting the dentist, or have a child who may feel intimidated about being in the dentist’s chair, nitrous oxide sedation can make the experience more comfortable and reassuring.
