Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Sedation is the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures.
At R.A. Campbell Dentistry, we offer nitrous oxide sedation.
Also known as "laughing gas", nitrous oxide is combined with oxygen that is inhaled through a mask, helping to calm and comfort patients.
They remain awake and are able to communicate, but have reduced anxiety, increased pain threshold, and the gas helps to make time pass more quickly.
Nitrous oxide is often used in pediatric dentistry.
Who Can Have Sedation at the Dentist?
Sedation is most appropriate for people with a real fear or anxiety that is preventing them from going to the dentist. Sedation dentistry may also be appropriate for people who:
- Have a low pain threshold
- Fidget during their appointment
- Have very sensitive teeth
- Have a bad gag reflex
- Need a large amount of dental work completed
