Laughing Gas - A.K.A. Nitrous Oxide


The dentist can sometimes be a scary place, especially for kids. It can be very uncomfortable having someone prodding around at your teeth inside your mouth. The prospects of getting drills, laser, or other equipment only make things worse. These are necessary procedures though, and despite using every bit of modern comfort and convenience, there are still going to be some bumps in the road from time to time. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can help ease the stress of a visit to the dentist by relaxing the patient.


How Does Laughing Gas Work, and Is It Safe?

The nitrous oxide is combined with oxygen, and administered through a breathing mask in a totally natural process. Recognized as completely safe by the American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry, this technique is widely used to make everyone a little more at ease during difficult procedures. The combination is very mild, and doesn't cause any long term problems. After the treatment is complete, oxygen is used to flush out the body, and return everything to normal. There is no better, safer alternative for making a trip to the dentist a little less stressful.


Call us today or contact us on the web to see how we can use laughing gas for your child's next visit to the dentist, and how it can make the whole process a little more fun, and a lot less scary. Properly administered nitrous oxide not only puts the child, parents, and dentist at ease, but it also makes the dental procedures go a whole lot smoother and without incident. Neilson Dental recognizes how frightening it could be, and wants to make your next trip to the dentist a little more pleasant.
