What is nitrous oxide?
Nitrous oxide is a form of sedation used at our dental office to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your dental treatment. It is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that you will remain awake and in full control of your faculties while using nitrous oxide. You will be able to communicate with our dentists how you are feeling and what you are experiencing. Nitrous oxide will make you feel pleasant, calm, and happy. Some of our patients experience such euphoria that they cannot help but giggle, giving nitrous oxide the term “laughing gas.”
Is nitrous oxide safe?
As administered by Dr. Romeo, Dr. Cardenas, and our trained team, nitrous oxide is completely safe. It is mixed with a larger percentage of oxygen and inhaled as you relax comfortably in our operatory. We take every precaution to ensure your safety when at our office.
What are the side effects of nitrous oxide?
The side effects of nitrous oxide are minimal. It generally takes only five minutes or so for the effects of nitrous oxide to wear off. With nitrous oxide, you will be able to drive home and feel great from the minute you walk out of our office.
