Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a gas that is breathed in through your nose while we care for your teeth. The gas relaxes you and can even produce a mild euphoric sensation. It’s very safe.
We like nitrous oxide, because it’s simple to adjust the dose perfectly to meet each patient’s unique needs. Additionally, the effects wear off very quickly, which means that if you are only using nitrous oxide for your sedation, you will be able to take yourself to and from your appointment and continue on with your day following your treatment.
