For patients that suffer from mild to moderate dental anxiety, laughing gas sedation can be an excellent option. With laughing gas sedation, a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen is administered using a tiny mask which is placed over the nose. Within minutes of being exposed to the laughing gas, the patient will begin to feel calm and euphoric. With laughing gas sedation, patients remain awake and are completely capable of communicating and following directions. Following treatment, laughing gas quickly wears off, allowing patients to return to their daily activities.
For those patients that suffer from more severe dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation may be a better option. With oral conscious sedation, the patient is prescribed anti-anxiety medication prior to their appointment. The anti-anxiety medication provides a calming and relaxing experience during treatment while allowing the patient to communicate and properly follow directions. Unlike laughing gas sedation, oral conscious sedation requires the patient to be driven by someone else to our practice. We also recommend spending the rest of the day relaxing, continuing normal activity the following day.
