Dr. Robert Axelrad, Brampton Dentist
For some patients, going to the dentist can cause anxiety. Whether you dislike local anaesthetic or needles, we can help.
Dental sedation involves the use of nitrous oxide – more commonly known as “laughing gas.” The benefits of nitrous oxide, one of the safest forms of sedation available, go far beyond giving you the giggles. Nitrous takes the edge off, allowing patients to relax and better able to accept the procedure.
Nitrous oxide is applied through a comfortable mask and inhaled through the nose. Within a few minutes – sometimes less – the gas relaxes patients and creates a sense of calm and euphoria. The dentist can then easily apply any additional anaesthetic or perform a given dental procedure without causing the patient any unnecessary pain, fear and discomfort.
Unlike most forms of sedation dentistry, nitrous oxide’s effects are easily and quickly reversible. After treatment, patients breathe pure oxygen for a few minutes, quickly reversing the effects of sedation – allowing patients to leave the office by themselves, totally under their own power.
Because nitrous oxide has so few side effects, it’s highly useful for both adults and children.
