Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Richmond Hill & Toronto
One of the biggest obstacles you may face in getting the best care for your smile is dental anxiety. At Dufferin Vaughan Dental Centre, we offer nitrous oxide, more commonly known as "laughing gas", to help you relax for the most comfortable dental care experience.
Nitrous oxide is a sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled from a mask over the nose. The gas has a rapid effect and calms you down before getting a numbing injection to begin the treatment. You are not asleep, just relaxed. Nitrous oxide wears off almost immediately after the flow of gas is stopped, and has no residual wooziness, so you may drive or return to work or other activities right away.
If you have more questions about nitrous oxide sedation, contact us at Dufferin Vaughan Dental Centre today. We always welcome new patients from Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Toronto, Maple, Thornhill, Woodbridge, and adjoining communities.
