What is nitrous oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a gas that is often called laughing gas. This gas can be inhaled during your dental treatment to help you feel more relaxed and calm at our office. Nitrous oxide sedation is a very safe form of sedation dentistry; the nitrous oxide is mixed with a high level of oxygen to ensure your safety and comfort. Nitrous oxide induces a relaxed, euphoric feeling that can help you have a more enjoyable experience at White Pearl Dentistry. The effects of nitrous oxide sedation wear off within minutes of the end of the treatment, and you can safely (and legally) drive yourself to and from your appointment.
