Many people experience anxiety when visiting a dental office. Instead of being fearful of your dental checkups and treatments, we want to ensure all of our patients are comfortable when stepping foot into our dental office. Glenwood Dental offers laughing gas which is a form of sedation for patients who experience anxiety. This method not only reduces anxiety levels but also alleviates pain during procedures.

What You Should Know About Laughing Gas in Glenwood

Laughing Gas is:

  • Colorless
  • Odourless
  • A safe way to relieve anxiety and pain during dental treatments and procedures

If you are considering laughing gas for your next dental procedure, it is essential to contact your dentist and discuss your past medical history. We suggest you bring a detailed list of any medical history, medications, and nutritional supplements you may be taking along with you to your consultation.

How is Laughing Gas Used?

Laughing gas or nitrous oxide is administered through inhalation. Patients are fitted with a soft nasal hood that fits over the nose. After a few breaths, you will start to feel relaxed. You are still awake for the treatment but just in a more relaxed, happier state of mind. Thus, some patients begin giggling as a side effect, hence the term laughing gas. 

Your dentist will be checking with you regularly to see how you are doing and feeling and once you start to display the signs of sedation, will start your dental procedure. 

This type of sedation does not last long, meaning the effects only last for as long as you breathe in through the mask. 

When Can Laughing Gas be Used?

Laughing gas can be used for several procedures. Some of which include:

  • Teeth cleaning
  • Restorative dentistry such as crowns, bridges
  • Tooth extraction

Our priority is to make sure that you are comfortable when visiting your dentist. That’s why we provide a safe and professional sedation method when it is needed. Contact our dental clinic in Glenwood today to find out if laughing gas is right for you!

Dr. Gao is awesome. Im very impressed with the care she provided on my first day. She explained details to me that my previous dentist did not do, now I have better understanding with what’s going on with my teeth. I would highly recommend coming to this dental clinic 👍

I’ve been going to Glenwood Dental Care for 2 years and can’t say enough good things about them. Dr Gao and her team maintain a professional yet relaxed atmosphere in their office which sure lowered any apprehension I had about dental visits. My questions and concerns are addressed, the appointments are well coordinated and they communicate directly with insurance companies. I’ll definitely continue to use them for my dental work.

We want to ensure that we are completely transparent and open about how much we charge for each of the treatment options available at our office.

It really depends on each patient! Typically we recommend that adult patients visit a dentist once or twice a year, even if your mouth is in good condition. This way, you can get your teeth professionally cleaned regularly and maintain excellent oral health.

The most common concerns patients see us for are toothaches — that’s because pain is a way for your body to tell you that something isn’t right. Under the surface, there could be a lot going on. You could be dealing with a variety of dental issues such as decay, gum disease, cracked or worn teeth, or an abscess. We also often help those who have lost or broken a tooth. Before you start overthinking your dental emergency, book your next dental appointment with one of our family dentists today!

If you’re feeling uncomfortable, you should always visit a dentist. Even if the pain does go away after a few days, it’s likely there’s an issue hidden under the surface that should be checked by a dental professional so that it doesn’t linger and continue getting worse. 

The Canadian Dental Association recommends the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. This helps one of our family-friendly dentists catch potential problems that can affect your child’s overall health and well-being as more teeth grow in overtime.

Yes, we do! If you’re looking for a new, family-friendly dentist in West Edmonton, please don’t hesitate to book your appointment today! We would be more than happy to help guide you on the right treatment solution for your oral health needs.

We’re ready to help answer any additional questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office today!
