Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Ease your dental anxiety with nitrous oxide sedation. Safe, effective, and quick to wear off, it’s ideal for a stress-free dental visit.

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe and popular sedation option used in dentistry to help patients relax during procedures. At Select Dental Office, we utilize nitrous oxide to create a more comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience, particularly for patients who experience nervousness or fear when visiting the dentist.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas that is administered through a mask placed over the nose. It has been safely used in dentistry for many decades to mildly sedate patients and reduce discomfort and anxiety during dental treatments.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide Sedation

  • Quick Onset: Nitrous oxide takes effect within minutes, quickly easing anxiety and discomfort.
  • Controlled Sedation: The level of sedation can be adjusted in real-time during the procedure to ensure maximum comfort.
  • Short Recovery Time: The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once the mask is removed, allowing patients to drive themselves home and continue their day without interruption.
  • Safe for All Ages: Nitrous oxide is a safe sedation method for children and adults, making it a versatile option for family dental care.

The Process of Nitrous Oxide Sedation

  1. Consultation: Prior to administration, we discuss your medical history and any concerns you may have to ensure nitrous oxide is the right choice for you.
  2. Administration: You will breathe normally through a mask placed over your nose. As you inhale the gas, you will begin to feel a pleasant level of relaxation.
  3. During the Procedure: While under nitrous oxide, you will remain conscious and able to communicate, but you will feel more relaxed and less aware of the procedure.
  4. Post-Procedure: Once the treatment is complete, the gas is turned off, and you will breathe pure oxygen for a few minutes to clear out any remaining gas. You will quickly return to normal.
