Your dentist can perform laughing gas sedation independently; an anesthesiologist is not required. The advantage for you: as a patient, you remain responsive throughout the treatment and do not lose consciousness.
Laughing gas or the laughing gas-oxygen mixture has a calming, relaxing and anxiety-reducing effect. However, you as the patient are always conscious and responsive.
For this reason, we at Zahnpark Mannheim often use this procedure at the patient's request.
The gas mixture is absorbed extremely quickly in the blood and brain and leads to a kind of perceived "floating state".
This state does not last long. The dosage is adjusted exactly to you and to the duration of the treatment. Shortly after the treatment, the effect disappears and you can also drive again.
Unfortunately, the costs for sedation with nitrous oxide are not covered by statutory health insurance. If you are interested, please contact us for further information.
Especially in the first trimester of pregnancy, dispensable applications of nitrous oxide should be avoided. We will be happy to advise you individually.
The nitrous oxide dosage is precisely tailored to you and the planned dental procedure. The effect should disappear shortly after the treatment.
