Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless inhalation sedative used to help you relax during certain dental procedures. Often known as “laughing gas” it is a mild sedative which is mixed with oxygen and delivered via a mask that fits over the nose. When the gas is administered, you get an airy feeling which helps take the anxiety that you may be feeling away.
Using nitrous oxide has great benefits. During dental procedures, the patient remains conscious and communication with the dentist is possible. Also, because the effects of the gas wear off quickly there is very little recovery time, and you can even drive yourself home after your procedure.
