Nitrous Oxide, known to many as laughing gas, is the most commonly used form of sedation in dentistry. It is administered by having a mask placed over your nose to help you inhale the gas mixture. You will fall into a euphoric state and feel completely relaxed. All feelings of fear and anxiety fade away, leaving you to sit back peacefully while your dental procedures are performed. In most cases all dental work can be completed in one visit while you are using nitrous oxide gas.
Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe and effective. Once the procedure is over, the nitrous oxide will wear off quickly and you will be able to drive yourself home and return to your daily activities.
