Nitrous Oxide Sedation at our Calgary office
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas as it is commonly known is a widely used mild sedative that can relieve you from anxiety and make you feel comfortable. The patient inhales the gas through a mask that supplies laughing gas in combination with oxygen. It is one of the safest forms of sedation where the patient gets a euphoric feel. The patient is fully conscious and can respond to verbal commands. The effect of the sedative fades away soon after stopping the supply of the laughing gas. This sedation method is suitable for patients who are not very anxious about dental treatment but feel slightly uncomfortable and need some support to keep them relaxed.
For patients who are more anxious about dental treatment, our dentist offers other sedation techniques as an option. All our sedation methods are safe and very effective in making patients feel comfortable.
