Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry in Grimsby
Helping you relax in the dental office with Laughing Gas Sedation
For dental procedures that could be painful, nitrous oxide sedation or laughing gas has become a common practice used in modern dentistry. Nitrous oxide is safe and effective for helping you relax while receiving dental care.
For anxious patients receiving dental treatment, nitrous oxide sedation will be administered by a mask that is placed over your nose. Within a matter of minutes, the patient will start to feel the effects of the laughing gas. The nitrous oxide sedation will quickly and effectively calm the patient
When the recommended dosage of the laughing gas has been administered the dental procedure will begin. In dentistry, this is referred to as conscious sedation. The effect of the gas lasts long enough to complete the dental procedure, and you can return back to your regular activities shortly thereafter.
