Although it is normal for a person to feel uncomfortable about going to a dentist – after all, few people look forward to a doctor’s appointment – there are patients who avoid a dental procedure altogether due to fear or anxiety. In the same vein, there are certain treatments that many patients, especially children, find too lengthy or uncomfortable to sit through.
Whether due to the nature of the procedure or dental phobia, it is never a good idea to avoid or delay a dental treatment. The long-term consequences of postponing your treatment are usually worse than dealing with it now. You may end up with more protracted and painful bouts or the need for more complicated procedures, even expensive surgery.
At No Gaps Dental, we understand the need to manage the anxiety and comfort levels of our patients so as to make their experience with us as positive and pleasant as possible. That is why we provide Sedation Dentistry as an option to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during treatment. Inhalation Dentistry (Laughing Gas) using nitrous oxide is a safe and effective form of sedation that is recommended for both adults and children.
With Sedation Dentistry, you no longer have to put off another dental procedure due to fear or anxiety.

What is Inhalation Sedation Dentistry?
The inhalation form of Sedation Dentistry is extremely safe with a proven track record – millions of patients with pre-existing fear of the dentist have been successfully treated with this technique. As the name suggests, the method involves the patient inhaling a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask or nasal cannula, which relaxes and distracts them.
Popularly nicknamed “The Laughing Gas”, Nitrous Oxide is an odourless and colourless gas used in medicine for its anaesthetic properties. Besides blocking and relieving pain, the analgesic gas produces a euphoric feeling that makes the inhalant laugh, hence the moniker. While suppressing anxiety and pain during the procedure, this sedation method allows the patient to remain conscious and still able to respond to simple instructions by the dentist. Depending on the patient’s comfort level, the dentist may adjust the flow and strength of the nitrous oxide mixture accordingly.
With Laughing Gas Sedation, there is no need to observe any pre-sedation diet or arrange for someone to pick you up from the clinic. The anaesthetic effects will wear out minutes after removing the mask. You will regain full consciousness and be ready to drive yourself home.
At No Gaps Dental, our dental professionals have the training and experience to administer the Inhalation Sedation to ensure that you receive your treatment in optimum comfort. All you need to do is sit back and relax while we work on your giving you a healthy and beautiful smile.
If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, we provide a safe and effective sedation method to make your treatment process comfortable and relaxing.
