Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry In Toronto

Nitrous oxide sedation in Toronto is often used by dentists in performing dental procedures such as wisdom tooth extraction. It is a safe, fast acting gas that can be inhaled. It can help a patient relax quickly, in just two or three minutes, and has no ill side effects. It can mean a painless trip to the dentist for many patients.

Oral Medication and Nitrous Oxide

Many patients choose oral sedation which means they take a pill instead of having to have a pain reliever injected. About an hour prior to their dental visit, the patient simply takes a pill. This requires proper supervision to ensure they get the right amount of medication and achieve a proper level of sedation. In many cases, oral medications are combined with nitrous oxide to provide the maximum comfort level for the patient during treatment. The patient’s vital signs will need close monitoring during the treatment and recovery.

Why Should You Choose Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide has only a mild sedative effect. It is administered through the use of a nose mask and will continue being delivered through normal breathing for the duration of the treatment or procedure. It is also called “laughing gas” because of its relaxing effect. In general, nitrous oxide improves a person’s mood and makes them have a sense of general well-being. The most important thing is that it relieves anxiety and stress about the procedure while also alleviating pain. In some people, it may cause some slight numbness and tingling, but there are very few side effects with its use and it’s been used safely in dentistry for many years.

The Ideal Candidate for Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Toronto

There are very few people who cannot undergo nitrous oxide sedation. Ideal candidates are worried about their upcoming dental visit, or if you tend to have a lot of anxiety surrounding an appointment. People who are apprehensive about dental visits benefit the most.

Properly aligned teeth not only give you a beautiful smile, but they can significantly improve your overall dental health.
