Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide produces a relaxing effect that makes it much easier for you (and for our team) to complete the dental treatments you need. We’ll simply place a small mask over your nose, and you’ll begin inhaling this clear, odorless gas. Right away, you’ll start feeling lighter and calmer. Once your procedure is finished, we’ll just take off the mask, and the sedative’s effects should wear off after just a few minutes. You should be able to drive afterward and resume your regularly scheduled day.
