Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Ottawa
Face your fears with a little laughing gas.
Our dental office is committed to providing safe, effective, and comfortable experiences for every patient at every visit. We offer sedation dentistry for nervous patients. Sedation uses medication to dull the senses and relax the body and mind, while still leaving patients conscious and responsive. It is considered safe and reliable by the Canadian Dental Association and is delivered by our experienced and diligent team of professionals.
When our patients are anxious or scared, we will often use nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) as a safe solution to keep them calm from start to finish. At Apple’s Dental Clinics, we deliver nitrous oxide sedation through a mask, which is a comfortable and stress-free delivery option.
All about Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Our office can offer patients nitrous oxide sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is a colourless and odourless gas that is often referred to as “laughing gas” because it can stimulate a happy, carefree mood. Nitrous oxide is provided to a patient through a nasal mask and works very quickly to sedate a patient. It also leaves the body quickly, allowing patients to return to their normal activities (including driving) after an appointment.
