Sedation Dentistry in Carramar

Helping Anxious Patients with Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Sedation

Woman wearing dental sedation maskAt Diamond Smiles Dental, we understand some patients may experience high levels of stress and anxiety when undergoing dental procedures. This can be due to many reasons, including past trauma, inaccurate portrayals of dentistry in the media, or a lifelong dental phobia.

No one should have to miss out on receiving dental treatment, nor should they have to suffer from poor dental health and hygiene. This is why we also offer sedative methods, including nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as “laughing gas”). We can administer nitrous oxide for a variety of treatments and procedures, including cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry.

The Advantages of Nitrous Oxide

Sleep dentistry performed under nitrous oxide is safe, reliable, and effective. It is administered via inhalation through a comfortable breathing mask, helping the patient to overcome their anxiety or discomfort within a short timeframe.

We use nitrous oxide because of the many benefits it offers patients, including:

  • It takes just 2-3 minutes to take effect
  • Patients become more relaxed without falling asleep, making them feel comfortable that they are still conscious for the procedure
  • It is safe to use on both infants and adults, producing no dangerous side-effects
  • It effectively controls and minimises pain and discomfort
  • Involuntary actions (such as the gag reflex) are minimised
  • Patients become more confident about visiting the dentist due to the positive and stress-free experience nitrous oxide offers
