Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is commonly used to help patients relax and feel at ease during their visit. For patients who feel especially anxious about visiting the dentist, nitrous oxide can help make them more comfortable to encourage a healthy routine of dental care.

Laughing gas is administered through a mask that you wear over your nose. As you inhale the nitrous oxide, you immediately exhale it through the mouth, so the sedative doesn’t remain in your system. In fact, the sedative effects will wear off almost immediately after removing the mask. Nitrous oxide is safe for most patients, including children.
