Nitrous Oxide and Anxiety-Free Dentistry
Nitrous Oxide (NO2), commonly known as “laughing gas,” is an option for patients who are nervous about an upcoming procedure. Nitrous oxide is a harmless gas that is mixed with oxygen and gently administered through a small nose piece. By breathing normally, the gas will begin to take effect after a few minutes, leaving you feeling calm and comfortable. This state is known as “conscious sedation” and you will still be able to hear and respond to any requests or questions by your dentist. The effects of NO2 will begin to wear off as the nitrous is lowered before your treatment has concluded. You will be able to walk out of your appointment feeling satisfied that your needs have been met.
