Laughing Gas Sedation North York

Nitrous Oxide, a mild sedative, is also called Laughing Gas and it is mostly used in the dental treatments to reduce dental pain or anxiety issues especially during children’s treatment. It is the most recommended pain-free sedation method given to children for comfortable dental treatments. 

The laughing gas is inhaled through a nosepiece in order to keep the patient awake throughout the procedure. This intake will make your child feel relaxed, dreamy, and floaty. He might feel a tingling sensation during the course of sedation, however, might forget about the treatment given to him. Also, the sedation effects might diminish instantly after the course completion. It is okay if your child feels a little irritated or nauseated after sedation. 

Although laughing gas nitrous sedation does contain some adverse effects, such as excessive vomiting or drop in child’s oxygen level. Dentistry at Sheppard always ensures your child is compatible with this type of sedation before we begin with our procedures. Moreover, we always ask for your consent because we know this might impact your child’s health. We ensure to give the right level of sedation so that the child could cooperate with our verbal instructions.

Giving your child a light meal 2 hours before the dental treatment such as a little soup does no harm.

Had a great experience with the doctor and her assistant. She was very polite and informative. She also advised me for my wisdom teeth extraction.

My dental condition was not good. I took my daughter’s advice and went to see her doctor at AIMS Dentistry at Sheppard, she suggested me a couple of procedures which would help my issue. I really appreciate the quick and genuine service they provided me. Thanks!
