Nitrous Oxide

If you've ever been to the dentist (and hopefully you have), you're probably familiar with nitrous oxide. Often called laughing gas or sweet air, nitrous oxide is a common form of sedation dentistry that produces a euphoric effect. Nitrous oxide is provided during dental procedures to relieve dental anxiety in both children and adults.

Nitrous oxide is a gas that's administered through the nose and exhaled through the mouth, eliminating it from the body almost immediately. Before receiving dental treatment, a mask is placed over the nose of the patient. This allows our dentists to work on the mouth uninterrupted.

After a few minutes, the effects of the nitrous oxide start to take place. Although you won't get the giggles, you will experience a light, airy feeling.

If you are interested in nitrous oxide sedation, please mention it while scheduling your appointment.
