What is Nitrous Oxide & Why is it Used?

Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is a mild dental sedative that can help relieve any feelings of anxiety a patient might be experiencing in the office while still allowing the patient to remain fully conscious. Nitrous oxide is a blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen that is delivered via a nasal mask. Once the mask is removed, the nitrous oxide escapes the body within a short period of breathing regular air again and has no lingering effects.

Nitrous Oxide is an easy solution to anxiety at the dentist’s office. It’s very well-tolerated, non-addictive, quick, reversible, non-allergenic sedative, and it can be adjusted to the level of concentration that best fits a patient’s needs.
