Many people experience anxiety when they visit the dentist or when they need care for their smile. Modern dental technology provides greater patient comfort than ever before, and many dentists offer a variety of sedative options for their patients. A popular, mild sedative among many dentists is nitrous oxide.
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe sedative option for many dental patients. Nitrous oxide is administered by small mask that fits over the patient’s nose and which provides a small amount of nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen. Patients treated with nitrous oxide report less pain, less anxiety, and a greater sense of calm about their experience at the dental office. The effects of nitrous oxide rapidly wear off after the treatment, and patients retain full consciousness during the entire dental procedure. Nitrous oxide has been thoroughly researched and has been approved by the American Dental Association as a safe sedative option.
