Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a clear, colorless, and odorless gas utilized to alleviate anxiety during dental treatments. It represents the safest form of minimal sedation, with effects typically beginning 1-2 minutes after inhalation. This method is exceedingly safe for both adults and children, offering the added convenience of a quick recovery. Just a few minutes of breathing oxygen can fully expel the nitrous oxide from your body, allowing you to return to your “normal” state. This means patients can safely drive themselves home following their appointment. If you’re interested in using this effective method for anxiety control during your dental visit, please speak with us to determine if you’re a suitable candidate.
