Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
At Willow Dental, we understand that some of our patients experience fear and anxiety while visiting the dentist. In fact, this is quite common. 40% of Canadians avoid the dentist due to fear, and this can be detrimental to their health.
If you have a fear and anxiety about going to the dentist, nitrous oxide sedation dentistry may be a great option for you – regardless of the procedure. In the simplest terms, nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a gas that you breathe in that will help you to feel much more relaxed.
There are several different types of sedation, with nitrous oxide being the mildest. Nitrous oxide is a safe method to reduce your dental anxiety, and has been approved by all major dental associations, including the Canadian Dental Association. It has the added benefit of wearing off quickly.
How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?
Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen. A small mask will be placed over your nose and you will inhale the gas from the comfort of our dental clinic. After a short time, you will begin to feel much more relaxed. Note that nitrous oxide will not put you to sleep but rather help you to relax and feel a great sense of calm. The dentist can also control how much you receive based on your unique needs.
