Nitrous Oxide Sedation

If you are particularly anxious when it comes to dental treatment you may find nitrous oxide sedation a good adjunct to your treatment. Nitrous Oxide, Laughing Gas, is the drug commonly used in childbirth.

By use of a mixing apparatus and a respiratory nasal mask, we can mix oxygen and nitrous oxide to a level very comfortable for your personal requirements. The gas is anxiolytic (reduces anxiety), and analgesic (pain relieving).

Most people who experience nitrous oxide sedation describe it as a very relaxed euphoric experience, and that the appointment time goes much faster and is far more pleasurable.

Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe and rapidly reversible .Some medical conditions contraindicate it’s use, hence a thorough medical history will be taken prior to it’s use.

Happy patient on Nitrous Oxide
