Nitrous Oxide Sedation: "Laughing Gas"

There’s no reason to fear going to the dentist! Nitrous oxide sedation dentistry provides safe, comfortable dental treatment for patients with high anxiety, children, or patients with special needs.

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is simply a gas that you can breathe in. It has no color or smell, and it doesn’t irritate. The equipment used for delivering “happy gas” is quite simple. It consists of a supply of compressed gases and an apparatus that delivers the gases to the client. By turning some knobs and flipping on/off switches, the administrator can produce the desired mix of N2O-O2 in the chosen quantities. Flowmeters and pressure gauges allow the administrator to keep an eye on the flow of gases.

Patients are awake through the procedure and able to understand and respond and there is no “hangover” effect – the gas is eliminated from the body within three to five minutes after the gas supply is stopped. You can safely drive without an escort.

You can benefit from sedation dentistry if you experience one or more of the following:

  • High fear of dental care
  • Complex dental problems
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Fear of needles and shots
  • Sensitive teeth

Patient Testimonials

WHAT OTHER PATIENTS, LIKE YOU, HAVE TO SAY

I have recently begun going to this dental group and after three visits I can say I would recommend them. I’ve met two dentists, a hygienist and a couple workers at the front desk and liked all of them. They let you know the work that needs to be done, the cost up front, plus recommendations of what should be done, but are not overbearing about any of it. I appreciate being able to make up my own mind and not feeling like I can’t go there if I choose to put something off. I believe we have found our family dentist.

I arrive and was greeted quickly. The office staff is friendly, my treatment protocol has been a success, ie. I did not need to have medication applied to numb my gums as in past treatment. All without feeling rushed. I am so glad I found Ackley Dental Group for my dental care!

I've been a patient at Ackley for 15 yrs now and they are always kind, professional and concerned about giving you the best treatment. No pressures here, its always advice and up to you when and how you'd like to proceed. 1 out of 5, they get a 10. 😊
