Laughing gas (coming soon...)

Laughing gas is commonly used in pediatric dentistry and for adults to help cope with procedures they may otherwise struggle with. It is a mild sedative gas that is delivered through a nose piece. As well as reducing anxiety, laughing gas also has a mild analgesic (pain relief) effect. This means it is excellent for use in dental procedures.

Laughing gas has safely been used for many years in medical and dental procedures. Prior to using laughing gas sedation, Dr. Gunitskiy will review your or your child’s medical history, answer any questions you may have and also go through some fasting instructions. This is because some patients can feel nauseous when they receive laughing gas.

Oral sedation

For oral sedation, a pill is usually given 1 one before the appointment. Once this pill is take it will produce a relaxed state, meaning you will no longer be bothered about the treatment that is being carried out. The fantastic additional benefit of pill is that it has amnesic properties, so most people will not remember much of the appointment. It is a safe drug which protects your reflexes and responses. All these benefits create a pleasant environment, which can hopefully make you feel more comfortable about coming for future appointments.
