Sedation Dentistry (Laughing Gas)
Does your kid make your days before dentist appointment the worst days because you trying to convince him that the dentist is a good guy who loves children and has some presents, chocolates and ice cream given to him if he behave good.
Don't worry about that anymore and you are welcome to visit our pediatric dental clinic in Dr. Aburas dental center where your kid will get a very calm, painless and good experience. The kid will get all his dental procedures while he is watching his favorite cartons without feeling any pain or getting afraid of anything because we use the Nitrous oxide which is a safe and effective sedative agent for children and adults. Our dentists are qualified for using advanced dental sedation procedures on pediatric and adults patients those who have a lot of fear or dental chair phobia about any dental treatments.
So you can just relax, fly and drift away… before you know it, your dental treatments and all its associated procedures are done!
How it works:
The Nitrous oxide gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a tiny small nasal mask that fits over the patient nose to help him relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is an option we may provide to make you more comfortable during some dental procedures. It is not intended to make you sleep. You will be completely able to hear dentists’ requests and to respond to any directions they have. They will ask you to take breathe normally through your nose, and just a few short minutes later you should start feeling the effects of the nitrous oxide gas. You may feel a little tingling in your arms and legs or light-headed. Some patients say that their arms and legs feel a little heavy. Finally, you should have a sensation of calm and comfortable. And don’t be afraid at all because these effects of nitrous oxide will be completely off after removing the mask.
