Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is a safe and effective sedative agent used to help patients relax. It is a mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. It is not intended to put you asleep. You will feel calm and comfortable and be able to listen to any requests or directions from your dentist. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. Most patients are quickly able to drive home and return to their daily activities.
