Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a safe treatment option used to reduce anxiety and relax a patient prior to and during treatment. It is one treatment option used for patients who have dental anxiety and/or a strong gag reflex to aid in performing procedures with minimal to no discomfort. The patient is fully awake and aware of all of the events going on around them while breathing nitrous oxide, but feel much more at ease and less concerned. Once the nitrous gas is removed, the effects of the nitrous oxide disappear within minutes and the patient can return to all regular daily activities.
