Ease Your Fear of The Dentist with Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Sedation

Do you have dental anxiety? There is no need to miss your next dental appointment in the Piedmont Triad. Carolinas BioHealth Dentistry offers nitrous oxide to calm your nerves for a pleasant dental experience. And we understand you may have fallen through your dental care routine because of dental fear. That’s why we offer judgment-free dentistry — we don’t blame you for not caring for your teeth and gums. We always give you a chance to start your smile journey from scratch.

How nitrous oxide is administered

You’ve probably heard of nitrous oxide by its moniker “laughing gas.” This gas is mixed with oxygen and then administered through a breathing mask. Once you breathe the gas through your nose, the sedation effects kick in immediately. You remain awake but relaxed and carefree as the dentist works on you.

Unlike oral sedation, the effects of laughing gas wear off immediately after you take off the mask. This way, you don’t always need someone to accompany you to the dental office.

When should I consider laughing gas?

Do you find yourself skipping dental visits because of anxiety? Does the thought of a simple dental care procedure like dental cleaning make you nervous? Nitrous oxide may be ideal for you. This sedation is perfect if you have mild dental anxiety. However, if your dental phobia is moderate to severe, you may need to explore oral and IV sedation options.

Benefits of Inhalation Sedation

Want to conquer dental anxiety? Try laughing gas sedation. This treatment yields numerous benefits, including:

  • It’s suitable for patients of all ages, including children
  • It’s easy to administer
  • Laughing gas wears off immediately after mask removal
  • Patients remain awake even when the sedation effects are on
  • It helps patients overcome dental anxiety to get the dental care they deserve

What you may consider a side effect of laughing gas is that it makes you giddy. You may giggle a little with the dentist but still cooperate through the treatment.
