What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a sedative used to help you stay relaxed during the dental visit. Before the procedure, a fitted mask is placed over your nose and as they breathe, the blend is absorbed through the lungs.

At the end of the treatment, the nitrous gas is removed and has no lingering effects. The reason why nitrous oxide is also known as “laughing gas”. is because it creates a sense of contentment and relaxation.

You are still fully conscious while being treated with nitrous oxide. You are generally safe to drive yourself home after this sedation option.
