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