Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Central Oakville Dental Care offers dental services in Oakville for children, teens, and adults. Our caring and professional dental team also realize that not everyone is comfortable visiting the dentist, which is why we offer Nitrous Oxide sedation to help make your visit as stress-free as possible.  

What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

At Central Oakville Dental Care, we offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation, also known as Laughing Gas. This is a mild type of sedation that is very effective for patients with mild to moderate anxiety. This type of sedation reduces anxiety and relaxes you, however, you are fully conscious. Before getting any type of sedation dentistry, you will have a detailed examination and discussion with your Oakville dentist about your health history and your sedation requirements and options. Once your dentist has the information they need, they will make recommendations specific to your needs. If your situation requires deeper sedation, we will refer you to a local specialist who will undertake the procedure (s) and you can then return back to us at Central Oakville Dental Care for your regular care.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide Sedation

The main benefit of sedation dentistry is that it eases fear and anxiety so you can feel calmer and more relaxed during dental appointments.  

Some people experience so much dental anxiety that they may be prone to skipping appointments or avoiding dental appointments altogether which can negatively impact their dental health. With Nitrous Oxide sedation, many are comfortable enough to get the care they need.  

Is Nitrous Oxide sedation dentistry safe?

When administered by a licensed healthcare provider, Nitrous Oxide sedation is typically very safe and can be administered to most adults and children. 

Details about the Nitrous Oxide sedation procedure

For Nitrous Oxide Sedation, your dentist will tell you not to eat or drink anything for the two hours prior to your appointment. Unless your dentist says otherwise, you should continue taking any prescribed medications. For other types of sedation, please follow the instructions given to you by your specialist. The Dentist will first check your blood pressure and then fit a mask that delivers the gas. Once you feel that you are relaxed we can start dental treatment and can communicate with you throughout the appointment to make sure you are comfortable. After we have done the dental procedure, we will go through all the instructions and the great thing about Nitrous Oxide Sedation is that you are free to go about your day as usual afterwards!

Dr. Hathiari has great bedside manner, and is very personable! I have had many bad experiences with dentists and because of that I can be quite nervous. But he was very thorough and made me feel comfortable! I will be happily switching dentists, and bringing the rest of my family in!
