Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a mild sedative that has been used in dentistry for more than 100 years. Usually mixed with oxygen, nitrous oxide is administered through inhalation and is a completely safe method to reduce pain and anxiety.

A colourless and odorless gas, nitrous oxide produces feelings of mild euphoria and a sense of well being. Patients remain alert and conscious of their surroundings, but are far less likely to feel anxious. Patients also experience tingling sensations and light-headedness.

Your dentist and clinic staff can explain nitrous oxide as a sedation option, and discuss any concerns you may have about its suitability or side effects.
