The most common forms of sedation used in dentistry are inhaled, oral, and intravenous. While they make the procedure more tolerable for you it is important to understand that these drugs aren’t painkillers so you will still need a dental anesthetic during your appointment.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry can be a great option for patients who suffer from high levels anxiety and fear when it comes to dental procedures. Usually these people are unable or unwilling to tolerate pain, which makes this type of treatment perfect; however, even those with extremely sensitive mouths need not worry about sensitivity because gas anesthesia will numb their nerves during procedure time.

Nitrous oxide is a very safe form of sedation. It is inhaled and the effects start within a few seconds. It can be adjusted quickly if a patient is too light or too deep. Also, after a few minutes without the gas, it is safe to drive home. It has very few side effects and hardly any effects on the kidneys, liver, brain, and more.
Nitrous oxide makes many people feel happy and warm. It causes a lot of people to laugh so it is often called laughing gas. It is great for sedation when a person is nervous at the dentist. It is also great pain relief.
Not many dentists use nitrous oxide analgesia anymore. We would be glad to use it if you are extremely nervous or you need some pain relief during your procedure. Our goal is to keep you as relaxed as possible, no matter what procedure that we are performing.
