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

The staff at Ackley are all helpful and look out for my best interest. I am nervous about going to the dentist but Katrina my hygienist always puts me at ease with her kind ways and gentle cleanings. I would strongly recommend Ackley Dental if you are looking for an experienced Dentist.

It’s ALWAYS a complete pleasure going to Ackley Dental, and my recent visit was no exception. The place is immaculate, easy parking, and almost NEVER any wait-time. Tho no one likes going to the dentist, this experience is the best it can possibly be, LOL! Everyone is friendly & professional. Always.

From the time I entered the waiting room until I was checked out, I was met with friendly, caring, professional staff. Dr. Scheuermann and Sabrina were very competent and quickly diagnosed my issues. I was an emergency patient and they were able to work me in between their scheduled patients and start my treatment. Being a retired dental hygienist from an office that prided itself on excellent patient care, I am happy to report that Ackley Dental Group is just as excellent!
