Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also commonly referred to as laughing gas, is a fast-acting sedation method that we can administer in our dental office. When you sit down in the treatment chair, we’ll place a small nose mask over you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within minutes, you’ll feel a euphoric wave wash over you. Once your treatment is complete, we’ll remove the mask and the effects will quickly wear off, allowing you to drive home and go about the rest of your day as you normally would.

Oral Conscious Sedation
