Sedation dentistry for all ages

Burtch Dental offers nitrous oxide sedation in Kelowna, BC for children, teenagers and adults. Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask that fits over the nose. It takes effect quickly, making you feel relaxed and euphoric. It wears off almost just as fast and has little to no side effects, meaning you can go right back to work or school after your appointment.

  • Individuals with a severe gag reflex or resistance to local anesthesia
