If you suffer from dental anxiety or feel nervous when visiting the dentist, nitrous oxide sedation could be a good option for you.

What Is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas or sweet air, works via inhalation. It is one of the mildest forms of sedation available and is a good option for patients of all ages. Nitrous oxide sedation helps patients who:

  • Have dental anxiety or fear
  • Are nervous about receiving a treatment they have not previously received
  • Dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office
  • Struggle to receive treatment without sedation

How Nitrous Oxide Sedation Works

When you receive nitrous oxide, our dentist and team will fit a small mask over your nose. As you breathe in the gas, you will begin to experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Some patients also report a “floating” feeling. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment, and the effects of the gas will wear off within a few minutes after we stop providing it, allowing you to safely and legally drive yourself home.
