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

I greatly appreciate the excellent care that I received today. First, I was called to explain to me the procedures that would be taken to keep everyone safe. When I arrived I waited in the car until the doctor was ready for me. When it was time the nurse came out for me in a mask and gloves. While inside every precaution was taken to keep us both safe. Kudos to all. Stay safe. Thank you to all for the great care you provide. I would highly recommend Akley Dental.

I called yesterday and they gave me an appointment for today. From the receptionist to the technician, Dr Amy Ackley and to the person processing my payment at the end, I could not have been treated more professionally and personally. I have been well pleased with the treatment received from the Ackley Dental Group. Friends of mine are also treated by them. Kudos to everyone at Ackley Dental.
