What do dentists use for sedation?

Safe and painless sedation can help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental appointments. At Garland Grove Dentistry, we use nitrous oxide, popularly known as “laughing gas.” 

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a clear, odorless gas that is inhaled through the nose by the patient. It is one of the safest anesthetics dentists use, and patients appreciate the benefits of using it during treatment. 

Nitrous oxide may be beneficial for you if you have any of the following:

  • Dental anxiety
  • Needle phobia
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Overactive gag reflex
  • Complex dental issues
  • TMJ-related difficulties
  • And more! 

Laughing gas commonly induces a dream-like, cozy feeling, and it helps patients relax their muscles and their mind. The effects begin quickly, usually within a few minutes of inhalation. 

Nitrous oxide is a mild, conscious sedative, so patients can still listen and respond to their dentist and the team during treatment if needed. Once the patient stops inhaling the gas, the effects subside within a few minutes.
