Meet Drug and Needle-Free Dental Sedation

Laughing ManIf you’re someone who tends to avoid going to the dentist because you have a phobia of needles, you no longer have to let this fear keep you from making a dentist appointment when it’s necessary. Now you have the option of using Nitrous Oxide for dental sedation, a needle free option also known as laughing gas. Because dental anxiety is one of the most common reasons why people don’t visit their dentist as often as they should, if you’re someone who fears going to the dentist it’s important for you to understand that there are alternate ways besides using the traditional sedation methods (which tend to involve using needles).

Nitrous Oxide: Relax With The Gas

One of the most common dental sedation methods used these days is Nitrous Oxide. No longer does a dentist have to use needles in order to sedate their patients when there’s dental work that needs to be done. There are quite a lot of advantages to using Nitrous Oxide, with one of the most important being that it’s completely pain free. Because so many people are afraid that they’re going to experience pain when they visit the dentist, this is definitely one of the most important advantages to using Nitrous Oxide.

The next best thing about using Nitrous Oxide is the fact that it works so quickly, usually within 2 to 3 minutes of inhaling it. You can fully expect Nitrous Oxide to help you  relax so deeply that before you know it all of your dental anxiety will be slowly fading away.

So How Does It work?

Funny BusinessNitrous Oxide is an extremely safe and popular dental sedation method. Nitrous Oxide has an extreme calming effect that completely and totally relaxes you so that your fear and worries about being at the dentist start to disappear. In fact, you’re probably going to be pleasantly surprised at the fact that you’re going to experience a very high level of extreme relaxation, which is why they also call it laughing gas.

Nitrous Oxide starts to work as soon as you begin to inhale this mild sedative. You’ll first feel a rather pleasant, tingling sensation and then your body will begin to relax. You can even listen to some music while the work is being done, relaxing you even further.
