What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that enters and leaves your body quickly, making it extremely safe - even for kids!  Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative medication that helps relieve anxiety and may even produce feelings of elation or euphoria. If you are coming to your dental appointment alone -- not a problem -- we can assure you that you will be okay to drive home at the end of your appointment.
