Nitrous Oxide (also known as laughing gas) is used to help patients relax during their appointment if needed. It is a colorless gas that is mixed with oxygen while administered.
The patient is able to breathe on their own and remains in control of all bodily functions. It is safe and effective for children as well! Patients do NOT need a ride to and from their appointment with nitrous because the laughing gas wears off right after it is done being administered.
