Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen gases that is inhaled through the nose. As you breathe in this gas, you will begin to feel more relaxed and comfortable and may experience a “floating” or euphoric sensation as a result of the medicine. You should remain calm and at ease throughout your treatment, and the effects of the gas should wear off shortly after you stop inhaling it. Nitrous oxide is considered very safe for use, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home following your appointment.
This mild form of dental sedation is a good option for anyone who experiences dental anxiety or phobia. You may be a candidate for nitrous oxide if you feel anxious about your treatment or even if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office. Our oral surgeon will discuss your options with you prior to your procedure to determine if you could benefit from nitrous oxide.
