Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is a type of sedation breathed through the nose and mouth. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of nitrous oxide.
