Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that is inhaled through a nose mask during treatment. As you inhale the gas, you will begin to experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation that will help you remain calm throughout your treatment. Our team, including a registered nurse, will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that you are comfortable and safe. The effects of your sedation treatment will wear off within a few minutes after we remove the nose mask, allowing you to safely and legally drive yourself home.
Nitrous oxide is a great option for anyone who suffers from dental anxiety or a dental phobia.

We will be happy to make an appointment to discuss your concerns with you so that we can determine if nitrous oxide is a good option for you and take steps to help you feel more comfortable during your time with us.
