Leaside Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous OxideAt Millwood Dental Centre we offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation, also known as laughing gas, to help children and adults who are mildly or moderately anxious about dental treatment. It eases their fears so that they can relax. This helps them to receive treatment in a comfortable and safe manner.

Who is a candidate for Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Adults and children who have…

  • High fear toward dentistry
  • Past traumatic dental experiences
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A bad gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Complex dental problems

Nitrous Oxide does not put you to sleep. You can still respond to Dr. Maria Ang’s requests and answer questions. Your speech may be slightly slurred, and your responses may be slower than usual. In general, you will be relaxed and cooperative. You will know when you are receiving an injection, and you may even feel it.  Your breathing and heartbeat will still be normal.
