What Is Laughing Gas?

Laughing gas is a mild, colorless, and odorless gas that’s been used to reduce pain and anxiety in dental practices since the mid-1800s. It’s mixed with oxygen and administered through a small mask that goes over your nose, which allows you to ingest it through normal breathing before and during your procedure.

Laughing gas is considered a safe sedation method and is the most used form of gaseous anesthetic in the world. The American Dental Association estimated in a 2007 study that 70% of dental practices used laughing gas sedation if they used any form of sedation at all.

The use of laughing gas to increase your comfort during a dental procedure is referred to as “sedation dentistry.” The team at Diamond Dental offers laughing gas sedation to help you to fully relax and get the best dental treatment possible.

We use sedation in combination with local anesthesia. This is to make sure our patients are numbed throughout their procedure, reducing any discomfort and ensuring a pleasant dental care experience. If you experience dental anxiety, ask about laughing gas!

What Are The Effects of Laughing Gas?

Laughing gas has a number of calming effects. While inhaling laughing gas, you’re likely to experience:

  • An increased sense of comfort
  • Mild lightheadedness
  • A pleasant tingling sensation in your arms and legs
  • An increased sense of weight in your arms and legs
  • Laughing gas doesn’t put you to sleep. Without any other additional anesthetic, you typically remain conscious during the entire time that it’s being administered. You’ll still be able to talk to your dentist and respond to any requests or directions he might have.

Laughing gas is a popular form of sedation because of how quickly and effectively it works. The effects are also entirely reversible and fade soon after the mask is removed. Patients can frequently drive themselves home shortly after undergoing a procedure with laughing gas.

How Can Laughing Gas Help My Oral Health?

Some patients have such strong dental anxiety that they avoid trips to the dentist altogether. While many dental issues can be avoided with good and consistent at-home care, it’s still absolutely essential to maintain regular visits with your dentist. There’s an incredibly long list of dental problems that can develop in spite of regular brushing and flossing, some of which can lead to larger health problems if left untreated.

For those with dental fears, laughing gas and sedation dentistry provides a way to overcome their anxiety and get the treatment their smile needs.

Diamond Dental review 1
Dr. V and Dr. Wang are both the most considerate, gentle, and caring dentists I have ever met. They both care so deeply for their patients. Very understanding and would do anything for anyone. Both assistants are wonderful as well. Always smiling, cheerful, and brilliant. Before coming to Diamond Dental I was petrified of any dentist I went to. Being here with them erases the fear. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

Dr. V and Jorge are so incredibly nice! The practice is very clean and the front office staff are friendly and efficient. They gave me a topical numbing ointment on my gums before starting the cleaning which was really thoughtful. They also recommended a bunch of restaurants in the area to try. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!
