Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) at our Jarvis dental office
What is a laughing gas and how does it help?
Laughing gas is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colourless gas which you can breathe and it is a popular option amongst dental professionals.
Patients are often given this to be put to sleep during dental procedures that at are long, complex, or potentially painful or uncomfortable. Laughing gas has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for numerous years across North America.
Advantages to using laughing gas?
- The level of sedation can be altered at any time to increase or decrease
- There is no after effects
- Laughing gas works rapidly, usually reaching the brain within 30 seconds. In as little as 2 minutes its relaxation and pain killing properties develop
For patients that are especially nervous and anxious about visits to the dentist, laughing gas is an idea solution.
