What Is Laughing Gas?

Laughing gas is a 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 free laughing gas sedation with all of our procedures, allowing 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.

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.

Visiting the dentist is not my favorite experience, however Dr V is the most gentle dentist I have ever had. She will answer all of your dental needs. She is very knowledgeable about dentistry and is also a very kind person, a great combination for a healthcare provider.

Dr. V is excellent. She takes the time necessary to do a great job and has a lovely bedside manner. What I most appreciated was that she took the time to walk me through my insurance coverage, explaining each of the services that I needed, how much they would cost me, and why.

Modern cleaning equipment and dental imagery led to an exceptional first visit. Very friendly staff. Dr. Vedullapalli took the time to explain every image and described her recommendations in detail. The office is beyond clean, dust-free, almost clinical.
