Sedation Dentistry – Laughing Gas in Pembroke Pines & Plantation, FL
Laughing gas is the common term for nitrous oxide. This is a safe and mild method of sedation used during dental procedures. Because this type of sedation dentistry has a short-lived, gentle effect, it is often used with kids.
Laughing gas exits the body soon after the gas is no longer being inhaled. Laughing gas sedation puts patients at ease so they can remain relaxed during dental procedures. The combination of gases is delivered through a facial mask. The treatment is administered as the patient inhales and exhales normally. Once breathing begins, laughing gas starts to take effect, and the child becomes more comfortable and less anxious.
