Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound made of oxygen and nitrogen. Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide has been used for decades as an effective sedative for many medical procedures. The gas is administered through a face mask and takes effect in just a few seconds, inducing a “twilight” state in which you’ll remain conscious, but sedated, pain-free, and calm.
Nitrous oxide is a perfectly safe sedation option for anyone struggling with dental anxiety. In many cases, patients are able to keep calm during procedures, and the gas is not needed. However, if you have had a history of severe fear and involuntary movement during dental examinations or treatment, you should consider nitrous oxide. Using sedation is not just to make you feel comfortable; it’s also to improve your safety and make treatment more efficient.
