Laughing gas is readily available in our office and provides an excellent way to combat anxiety for most dental procedures. It is the mildest form of comfort that we use, and it flows through a comfortably fitting mask that rests over your nose. Laughing gas is an odorless gas that is used in combination with pure oxygen to induce a feeling of relaxation and well-being during treatment. Laughing gas often creates a pleasant feeling of euphoria that can make ordinary things seem funnier. We can easily customize the level of comfort for each patient, which takes effect within minutes.
You won’t experience any short-term memory loss as you might with other methods. At the end of treatment, the effect caused by the laughing gas dissipates almost immediately, and you will be able to return home with absolutely no lasting effects. You don’t even need an escort to or from your appointment if you are using only laughing gas for comfort.
