Dental Nitrous Oxide in Dubai JLT​

Nitrous Oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) may be recommended to assist a child through a restorative dental appointment. This can be particularly useful for young children or for patients with special needs, and helps to ensure that their visit to the dentist is a positive one.

Nitrous oxide is often recommended for patients who experience anxiety or who have a strong gag reflex. Patients who are particularly sensitive to the sounds, smells, and feelings during a dentist appointment may also benefit from nitrous oxide.

What Does Laughing Gas Do?

Nitrous oxide (N2O), more commonly referred to as laughing gas, is a mild sedative agent that safely and effectively manages pain and anxiety during dental treatment. The colorless and odorless nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. Patients are asked to breathe normally and should feel the effects of the laughing gas within minutes.

Contrary to its name, laughing gas does not necessarily make you laugh. The nitrous oxide slows down your nervous system to make you feel less inhibited. You may feel light-headed, tingly, or even heaviness in your arms or legs. Ultimately, you should be calm and comfortable throughout the procedure. You might even giggle a time or two.

We apply laughing gas sedation in a safe way, while your child remains conscious. Your child will be able to undergo the treatment with more peace of mind. Children older than four years can be treated under nitrous oxide.
