What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years.

Nitrous Oxide has been the trusted standard of sedation dentistry for many years

Nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is a safe, colorless gas that patients breathe in when they wish to feel more calm and relaxed with sedation dentistry. If you choose to implement nitrous oxide into your appointment, treatment is simple and involves breathing in a predetermined mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide. Patients undergoing this form of sedation dentistry will feel the relaxing effects within minutes and remain able to breathe comfortably, however they may fall asleep or be unable to remember the appointment after treatment.

Before Selecting Nitrous Oxide
