Wondering what “nitrous oxide” is? It’s actually just laughing gas! Nitrous oxide is one of the most commonly used anesthetics in dentistry because of its many benefits and minimal risks.
We administer nitrous oxide through a comfortable mask. After 30 seconds to a few minutes of breathing, you’ll begin to feel the pleasant effects. When your procedure has been completed, you’ll be given oxygen to breathe for a few minutes, which completely reverses the effects and lets you leave our office feeling back to normal.
