Sedation: Light Sedation

Nitrous Oxide

Light sedation is achieved through the use of a gas called Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas. The gas is mixed with oxygen and is inhaled through a small mask placed over your nose.

The benefits include:

  • It is extremely safe
  • It wears off quickly so there is no need for someone to drive you home from your appointment
  • The doctor can accurately control the level of sedation
