”Dental anxiety is a common condition that affects thousands of people in Canada. Unfortunately, it can cause many people to avoid coming to the dentist until they absolutely need to go, adding to the anxiety.
Moncton Smiles can help with a sedation dentistry option. We provide nitrous oxide sedation to help keep you at ease during your visit.
Nitrous oxide has been used for over 100 years as a mild sedative in dentistry. Known also as laughing gas, it provides a light to moderate level of calmness with very few side effects. The sedation effect lasts a short time and wears off quickly after your appointment.
We administer nitrous oxide with a small mask that is placed over your nose. The gas is odourless and takes effect very quickly, causing you to be sedated and calm…some patients even doze lightly during treatment.
