Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide

Probably the most common form of sedation dentistry, nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is an effective way to remove patient anxiety and offer a peaceful dental visit. In this process:

  • An inhaler which releases the gas is placed over your nose. 
  • Within a few moments, you will experience a serene feeling which will continue throughout the procedure until the gas is removed. 
  • Afterwards, these effects disappear quickly and you can resume your normal activity.
