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

It’s ALWAYS a complete pleasure going to Ackley Dental, and my recent visit was no exception. Do you to Covid, I was given thorough instructions at the new procedures. I parked in the parking lot, called the front desk, and in less than 60 seconds the nurse came out to greet me. She did a temperature scan, and then guided me through the front doors and straight to the dental chair. My hygienist Nicole wore a mask the whole time. After asking me the standard questions, she added a face shield to her head, and then did the normal cleaning. Although no one likes going to the dentist, this experience is the best it can possibly be, LOL! Everyone is friendly & professional. Always.
