The Use of a Calming Inhalant for Sedation
Sedation Dentistry: The use of Laughing Gas for Sedation
Laughing gas is a relaxing inhalant for people who are mildly uncomfortable or apprehensive. It calms their fears so they can relax and get treatment comfortably. A tiny hood is placed over the patient's nose. The patient relaxes but remains alert and able to interact. Sedation wears off very instantly when the gas is turned off.
