Inhalation Sedation


The Sunlight Dental Practice accepts referrals for children and adults under inhalation sedation,
using nitrous oxide and oxygen. This treatment is ideal for mild-moderately anxious patients, and for children who have limited dental experience but require treatment such as restorations, extractions of deciduous teeth or orthodontic extractions.


  • ASA grade I or II: either fit and well, or mild systemic disease that is well controlled
  • Normal range BMI
  • Ideally 6 years and above: younger children tend not to be able to sit in chair and follow instructions adequately for it to work
  • Some compliance from patient: severely anxious patients who will not sit in the chair are highly unlikely to be able to accept treatment under inhalation sedation and likely require referral for IV sedation or GA
  • Able to breathe adequately through their nose
  • Please include xrays if possible: this can be a good indicator for if they will accept some treatment under inhalation sedation
