Options for SedationLaughing Gas
is the most common dental sedation used in dental offices. This type of dental sedation is often given to children. It is also called as inhalation anaesthesia wherein a mask is placed in your nose to inhale nitrous oxide. Inhaling laughing gas doesn’t make you sleep but makes you relatively relaxed and anxious-free.
During inhalation of laughing gas, most patients report that there is reduced discomfort during the administration of local anaesthesia to the gums.
Enteral Sedation is given in the form of a pill or liquid that you take through the mouth. It makes you relax, but not asleep.
General Anaesthesia is a type of dental sedation wherein you are asleep during the entire procedure. The sedative is injected directly into the vein and can be used in conjunction with laughing gas. Recovery time is needed before you can leave the dental office.
