Nitrous Oxide aka "Laughing Gas"

A significant number of Americans do not visit the dentist for regular checkups because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety.  Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist. The best way to learn to cope with you fear is to talk to your dentist and decide on a way that you will be comforable.

Here are some advantages associated with nitrous oxide:

  • Anxiety is alleviated.
  • Few side effects.
  • More can be accomplished during each visit.
  • Perfectly safe.
  • Procedures seem to take less time.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is used as a mild sedative.  It is delivered through a nose hood, and is administered throughout the entire procedure.  Nitrous oxide elevates the general mood and can evoke a general sense of well-being.  Most importantly, it relieves anxiety and reduces pain during the procedure.  In addition, some tingling and numbness may be felt. There are few side effects associated with nitrous oxide, and it has been safely used in dentistry for many years.
