Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas” or “happy gas” is a safe and effective sedative agent that is inhaled through a mask that fits over your nose. It is a great way for patients to become more comfortable and ease any anxiety.
Effects of nitrous are felt immediately, and patients have reported initially feeling tingling in their limbs, heavy limbs, light-headed, etc before ultimately feeling calm and relaxed. Patients can still hear and respond normally and are fully conscious. Effects are immediately worn off once the nitrous is turned off and flushed with 100% oxygen through the mask.
Patients can safely drive home after procedures. Side effects can include nausea and headache. It is very important for patients to communicate with the dental team about how they feel during process.
We offer Nitrous to all patients of all ages for any treatment!
