Nitrous oxide, also referred to as “laughing gas”, is merely the gas nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen that your sedation dentist then administers to you through a tube placed into your nose so you breathe it. It is odorless and doesn’t really make you laugh or even giggle! Nitrous oxide is quick acting, meaning once you receive nitrous oxide you have your dental treatment done soon after. When the sedation dentist removes the tubes from your nose, within a very short time, you do not feel any after effects. During your dental procedures, you feel relaxed and aware, but not anxious about your procedures.
Oral conscious sedation is administered via a pill that we will prescribe to you. It is usually taken before you come to your appointment and can make you feel drowsy or woozy. You will require a friend or family member to provide you transportation to and from your appointment. You will feel calm and relaxed throughout your appointment and will still be aware of your procedure.
