Nitrous Oxide
for Fear-Free Dentistry

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is one of the safest and most widely used forms of dental anesthesia. You can enjoy the benefits of sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide without needles, pills, or lingering grogginess. Nitrous oxide is a gas you’ll inhale through a nasal mask, which we can easily adjust from moment to moment to help you achieve the perfect level of relaxation to enjoy a completely comfortable experience.

Nitrous oxide has many benefits including helping local dental anesthesia (numbing injections) work better, suppressing the gag reflex, increasing your pain threshold, and helping decrease tooth sensitivity. You’ll stay alert and responsive throughout your sedation dentistry experience with nitrous oxide but feel calm, relaxed, and comfortable. Because it wears off quickly, nitrous oxide can be used for any procedure, including routine cleanings, but is so effective it can help you stay comfortable through longer, more involved treatments. Best of all, you’ll be able to drive yourself home after your appointment and go about the rest of your day as normal.
