The Benefits of “Laughing Gas”

A Stress-Free Treatment

Laughing gas is inhaled, so you won’t need to worry about any needles
Effects wear off quickly, and you’ll be able to drive yourself home after your treatment
You’ll be awake during your procedure, but you’ll be in a deep state of relaxation
It's perfect for mild cases of dental anxiety and leaves patients with positive memories of the procedure
How does laughing gas work?

If you experience anxiety or dental phobia, our dentists use Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, to keep you safe and calm. When Nitrous Oxide takes effect, it gives the patient a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. You’ll be awake during your procedure, but you’ll be calm and stress-free. Another benefit of nitrous sedation is that it wears off quickly – usually the effects will wear off soon after treatment. That way you can enjoy the rest of your day as you normally would.

How do I know if I need sedation dentistry?

If you suffer from dental phobia to any degree, or if you will be undergoing extensive surgery, sedation dentistry might be the right option for you. Dr. Nguyen will take the time to discuss your specific needs and come up with a plan that works best for you. Contact us today to set up a consultation and learn more about our sedation options.

Can I drive after receiving sedation dentistry?

Laughing gas is used most often because a major benefit is that it wears off quickly, allowing patients to drive themselves home and go about the rest of their days as they normally would. We offer this option as part of our commitment to convenient, quality care because we know our patients have busy lives. If you want to learn more about this, contact our Tomball dentist, Dr. Nguyen, today.
