Nitrous Oxide, or as it's commonly referred to as laughing gas, is a safe sedation method offered by Ladera Family Dentists.
If you are an anxious patient, nitrous oxide can help you feel relaxed during your appointment. Unlike its nickname implies, patients don’t laugh when they have received this treatment. Instead, a pleasant feeling of warmth and slight numbness takes over the patient. Our Ladera family dentist explain what you should know before your appointment.
Things to know about laughing gas:
Nitrous oxide is typically administered through a nose piece, which the patient breathes in while sitting in the dental chair. The effects of laughing gas are quick, leaving patients relaxed through the duration of their dental procedure.
Most patients are eligible for nitrous oxide during their dental appointments, especially patients that are nervous or experience anxiety. Depending on the level of anxiety of the individual, our Ladera Ranch dentist can easily adjust the depth of relaxation being administered.
Yes! Nitrous oxide can be completely covered by your insurance. So you don't have to choose between worrying about your appointment and worrying about cost.
