Many people know nitrous oxide as laughing gas. In our office, we can administer nitrous oxide to relieve anxiety for patients if needed. After you're comfortably seated in the dental chair, you will inhale the gas (a nitrous oxide and oxygen mixture) through a face mask covering your nose. We will control the amount of nitrous oxide that you receive to ensure your safety. You will begin to relax and feel less anxious, so the dentist can perform your dental work while you stay completely comfortable. This does not take the place of local anesthetic and being numb, rather, it will help anxious patients relax for a better appointment experience. The effects of nitrous oxide subside once we remove your mask, so you will be capable of driving yourself home following the visit and can continue your daily activities as normal. Pregnant women cannot use nitrous oxide.
