Nitrous oxide, known to many as laughing gas, is administered by having the patient inhale the gas, which is carefully monitored by your doctor. Nitrous helps patients feel comfortable and relaxed, minimizing feelings of fear and anxiety fade away, leaving you to sit back peacefully while your dental procedure is performed. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe and effective. Once the procedure is over, the nitrous oxide will wear off fairly quickly. You will need to have a preliminary visit with your dentist to make sure that you are eligible candidate for nitrous. If you have been worried about your next dental visit, it is time to stop!
