Nitrous oxide is sometimes known as laughing gas, and it is milder form of conscious sedation that is administered through inhalation, helping patients relax while receiving the dental care they need. This form of sedation works well for patients who are often anxious or uncomfortable at the dental office, who have a sensitive gag reflex, or who simply find the sounds, sights and smells of dental offices uncomfortable.
When you are settled in the dental chair, our dentists will administer the nitrous oxide by placing a nose mask over your face and asking you to inhale. Many patients describe the feeling of nitrous oxide as a floating sensation, and our team will keep watch during your treatment to make sure you are remain comfortable and safe throughout. Unlike IV sedation, nitrous oxide wears off only a few minutes after your mask is removed, so you can safely drive yourself home after treatment.
