How Does Laughing Gas Work?

Minimal inhaled sedation (also known as laughing gas) is administered through a comfortable nose mask. During your appointment, you’ll breathe in the sedative, which will result in feelings of euphoria and happiness. You may also feel disconnected from your body and what’s happening around you. You will also feel less pain and discomfort. However, you will be completely conscious, though you may feel somewhat sleepy and relaxed.

The biggest benefit of inhaled sedation is that its effects usually wear off within about 5 minutes and its after-effects are relatively minor. These effects are limited to symptoms such as headache, nausea and dizziness. You can drive yourself home or even go back to work after minimal inhaled sedation. This is not possible with any other form of sedation.

What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Oral conscious sedation taken in pill form. You’ll take this sedative about 1-2 hours before your appointment. Once it takes effect, you will feel drowsy, sleepy, and disconnected from what’s happening around you. You may even fall asleep, and you will likely experience “anterograde amnesia,” forgetting most of what happens during your appointment.

This method of sedation provides you with a deeper level of relaxation compared to inhaled sedation. You will still remain conscious, but the after-effects of oral conscious sedation last up to 4-6 hours after treatment. You will not be able to drive yourself home or go back to work immediately after treatment, so you will need to make appropriate arrangements for this.

How Does Sedation Help With Dental Anxiety?

Both minimal inhaled sedation and oral conscious sedation will help you feel more relaxed during your treatment. If you have dental anxiety, your oral health should not pay the expense. Sedation helps you get the treatment you need by reducing your level of consciousness, helping to prevent pain and discomfort, and allowing you to feel more safe and comfortable throughout your procedure.
