Sedation dentistry uses a colorless, odorless, and non-irritating gaseous form of sedation known as Nitrous Oxide, or otherwise, well-known as the laughing gas. This gas is easy to breathe and causes no intolerable side-effects. It has been the primary means of providing sedation in dentistry for several years. Upon inhaling this gaseous sedation, although the patient is completely relaxed and calm, he or she would not lose control of any voluntary functions of the body.
Your gaseous form of sedation, Nitrous Oxide is widely used due to a couple of great reasons. Here are a set of features that describes why.
- Your sedation can be manually and externally controlled to deepen or reduce the amount of sedation.
- Nitrous Oxide guarantees zero side-effects.
- It minimizes gagging to a large extent.
- Its sedative properties kick in pretty soon within two to three minutes upon administering the sedation.
Children can also benefit from laughing gas as it is known to be safe and non-irritant. Caution is strictly followed, and patients can be completely confident and reliant on this form of sedation for their dental procedures.
