Sedation

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide gases. Inhaling nitrous oxide creates a sense of well-being and relaxation, which can help individuals who experience anxiety or fear about dental treatment feel more at ease. Nitrous oxide increases your pain threshold and, when necessary, makes the administration of anesthetic injections more comfortable. It is also helpful for patients who have a strong gag reflex that interferes with dental treatment.

  • Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry and has very few side effects and risks.
  • Nitrous oxide is non-addictive, and you will remain fully conscious throughout treatment.
  • Administration is comfortable and painless, involving no more than a mask over the nose. This makes it an excellent option for children with dental anxieties or individuals with mental or physical disabilities.
  • Feelings of calm and relaxation are felt almost immediately, and breathing pure oxygen for several minutes after treatment completely reverses the effects.
