Inhalation Sedation - Easing Your Child's Dental Fears

Visiting the dentist can be an anxiety-inducing experience for children, and the team at Angle House Ealing understands this challenge well. That's why we have implemented a special technique known as inhalation sedation to ensure your child's dental visit is as stress-free as possible.



Understanding Inhalation Sedation:

Inhalation sedation involves the use of a carefully balanced mixture of air and nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. Administered through a small mask placed on your child's nose, this technique is a game-changer when it comes to alleviating anxiety associated with dental procedures.


How Does It Work?

As your child breathes in the nitrous oxide-air mixture, they experience a calming effect that helps them relax. The beauty of inhalation sedation lies in its ability to reduce pain perception, making it easier for our dental professionals to initiate treatment. It's essential to note that this procedure is entirely safe and does not induce sleep. Your child will remain awake, fully conscious, and able to communicate throughout the dental session.


Benefits of Inhalation Sedation:

1. Reduced Anxiety: Inhalation sedation is a powerful tool in minimizing anxiety, making the dental experience more pleasant for your child. The calming effect allows them to approach dental procedures with greater ease.

2. Enhanced Pain Management: The sedative properties of nitrous oxide contribute to a decreased perception of pain. This is particularly advantageous when dealing with more invasive dental treatments, ensuring a smoother and less uncomfortable experience.

3. Maintaining Awareness: Unlike other forms of sedation that may induce sleep, inhalation sedation keeps your child awake and responsive. This enables effective communication between our dental team and your child, fostering a sense of control and security.
