What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sometimes called “sleep dentistry,” sedation dentistry refers to the use of anesthesia and/or sedation during a wide range of dental procedures. Sedation helps patients relax for a comfortable, stress-free experience. At Stratman Family Dentistry, we offer laughing gas to put our patients at ease. It can be safely combined with a local anesthetic to numb the tooth during treatment and reduce any potential pressure or discomfort.

What is Laughing Gas?

Laughing gas is an inhaled sedation method. The gentle breathable gas is delivered through a small mask placed over the nose. It is a very safe and mild sedation method that puts patients in a state of ease and giddiness. Patients will be completely relaxed and anxiety-free but remain awake throughout the procedure. Depending on the patient’s level of anxiety and pain threshold, we can also vary the depth of sedation as necessary.

How Long Does Laughing Gas Last?

Laughing gas is typically administered about five minutes before the beginning of your procedure. The gas takes effect quickly and can be felt within minutes. Once the gas is stopped, the effects wear off with any lasting grogginess. Patients can safely drive home or return to work or school following the use of laughing gas.

Is Laughing Gas Safe for Children?

Yes, laughing gas is routinely used in pediatric dentistry to help children feel relaxed, comfortable, and happy during their dental visits. It has been used in dental procedures for 100 years and recommended by pediatric dentists.
