Dental Information

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a type of conscious sedation that reduces dental anxiety.

While administering Nitrous Oxide through a mask, you will begin feeling light-headed or feel a tingling in your arms and legs, You will not fall asleep and will be able to hear and respond to any requests by the dentist. The gas is not only absorbed quickly but also wears off quickly and for this reasons is often used in quick or short dental procedures.

Despite the benefits of using nitrous oxide as sedation gas, expectant patients and those with respiratory problems should not use it for sedation.
