Some people tend to think that dental procedures are painful and uncomfortable which is why they try to avoid having an appointment and just bear the agony of a toothache and leave oral diseases untreated. Untreated oral issues can put oral health at risk and can cause general health complications. That’s why here at Heresi Dental Care, we are committed to providing the most comfortable dental care possible with our state-of-the-art amenities such as massage chairs, soft pillows, tv, music, and sedation to promote relaxing and painless dental procedures.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
A branch of dentistry designed to bring the patients into a state of relaxation with the use of sedative or medication; thus helping the patient cope up with dental anxiety and fears. It is also called as “sleep dentistry” (though the patient is awake except for those who are under general anesthesia) that allows the patient to be in the most comfortable state.
Type of Sedation in Heresi Dental Care
Dentistry has developed a lot of ways to administer sedatives. One of the techniques is inhalation. Heresi Dental care uses laughing gas (nitrous oxide) fused with oxygen in bringing comfort and relaxation to a patient. The sedative is administered by placing a mask over the nose to allow the patient to be in a euphoric state. Laughing gas is a colorless and sweet-smelling gas that reduces one’s dental anxiety. The dentist can control the amount of sedative depending on the patient’s needs. Once the mask is placed, the sedative instantly takes effect and also immediately wears off once the mask is removed after the procedure allowing the patient to go home alone.
BENEFITS OF LAUGHING GAS
- Easy adjustment of sedation level

Sedation Dentistry plays an essential role when it comes to allowing patients to receive worry-free and comfortable dental treatments. It eliminates dental anxiety for fast and efficient procedures.
