nitrous oxide (laughing gas)

It is important that you are provided with optimal oral care and health. We want you to feel relaxed throughout your procedure while attaining a beautiful smile. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a popular choice for sedation that you can trust.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a colorless gas that administers conscious sedation. It is commonly referred to as “laughing gas” in which you will not feel anxiety or pain. You will be awake throughout the procedure, however, you will be in a relaxed state of mind.

Am I a Candidate?

You may be a candidate for nitrous oxide sedation if you are:

  • In good health
  • Anxious
  • An adult
  • Currently not taking other forms of medication

How Does it Work?

We will administer nitrous oxide sedation to you through a gas mask. You will inhale the gas combined with gas and oxygen. Then, you may feel a tingling sensation—this is an indication that the sedative is beginning to kick in. As soon as you are in a relaxed state, we can begin your dental procedure.

After the procedure is complete, oxygen levels will return, and you can sit and stand on your own. We highly recommend having someone take you to and from our office.
