Nitrous Oxide Laughing Gas Dental Sedation:
The most useful drug in sedation dentistry is nitrous oxide gas. “Dental gas or nitrous oxide laughing gas is the most useful and practical sedation available in the dentistry…it is effective for mild to moderate dental fear, has no hangover effect and goes away so quickly you can even drive yourself to and home from your appointment.”
Dental laughing gas is also the most inexpensive method of dental sedation. It is also quite safe and has a very low toxicity.
Dental gas may not be a deep enough sedation for people who need to be put to sleep for dental work such as wisdom teeth extractions, implants with prf and full mouth implants. In cases where deeper sedation is necessary, IV dental sedation or oral sedation should be considered.
