You may know laughing gas by its more popular name – laughing gas. Your Alan Pressman DMD dental expert can keep patients calm using this wonderful sedative.
Laughing gas is inhaled through the nose via a mask that is applied by your dentist. Patients won’t have to worry about needles or taking any pills – you can be comfortable and relax in our dental office. Inhaling sedation is a great option for children as well as adult patients that do not enjoy needles or do not enjoy taking medications orally.
You’d be surprised at how quickly laughing gas begins to sedate you and allow you to relax in the dental office. The results start to set in almost immediately, giving you the comfort needed to get through any dental procedures your dentist may recommend. While other forms of sedation may take several hours, such as oral sedation, or require longer recovery times, such as IV sedation, laughing gas is fast and effective. The effects only take a few minutes to set in after your dentist applied the mask to your nose. After procedures have been completed, the effects wear off just as fast as they set in.
Your dentist has the ability to remain in control of your sedation during the entire procedure. Dr. Pressman uses advanced technology and equipment that allows laughing gas to be adjusted during treatment, keeping you at a comfortable level of sedation and giving your dentist supreme control while working on your oral health. You can be assured that your safety will be preserved when working with any of the professional dental team at Alan Pressman DMD.
