How does nitrous oxide work?
Nitrous oxide is the mildest form of dental sedation. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a blend of nitrogen and oxygen delivered through a small mask over your nose. You will not fall asleep and will be able to respond normally to your dentist’s instructions, but you will feel a bit light-headed and silly, as well as deeply relaxed. Nitrous oxide wears off in just minutes after the mask is removed, making it safe for you to drive home.
