Laughing Gas Sedation Available in Mt. Vernon
Do you wish you could sail through your dental visit without any anxiety or pain? Laughing gas makes it perfectly possible to receive any dental procedure you need without any discomfort.
Laughing gas is a form of minimal sedation dentistry that involves inhaling a safe gas. Laughing gas helps you relax for as long as necessary, but also wears off quickly after you stop inhaling it. When you enter our office for your laughing gas appointment, our team will make sure that you feel comfortable with the small laughing gas mask, accompanied by any amenities or entertainment you would like.
You can leave our office with beautiful porcelain veneers, white teeth, or a smile free from decay and disease. At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, we make painless dentistry a reality with laughing gas.
Advantages of Laughing Gas
Fast-Acting | Laughing gas reaches the brain within 20 seconds, and the patient will begin to relax and become numb after 2–3 minutes.
Adjustable | The depth of laughing gas sedation can be altered from moment to moment by your dentist based on your changing needs.
No Time Constraints | Some sedation methods can only remain effective for an hour or two, but laughing gas can be used for as little or as much time as necessary.
No Hangover Effect | The gas is eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 minutes once the gas supply is cut off. You can safely drive yourself home after the procedure.
Laughing Gas Side Effects
Laughing gas side effects are very rare. This mild form of sedation is one of the safest available. Our dentists will help you avoid laughing gas side effects by providing you with pre- and post-sedation instructions.
