Sedation Dentistry Toronto

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is one of several Sedation Dentistry options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.

Benefits of nitrous oxide:

  • Proven safety record
  • Offers an analgesic (pain relieving) effect
  • It’s quick-acting, with few side effects
  • You don’t need someone to escort you to and from the office
  • You can return to normal activities immediately
  • It is safe for children

Nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used sedation method. Under nitrous oxide you remain conscious and able to breathe on your own, with a sense of total well-being (euphoria). Patients generally recover quickly, often with little memory of the procedure.
