In order to maintain your overall good health, it is important to practice good oral health habits, which should include regular visits to your dentist for professional teeth cleanings. This procedure is a vital component of achieving and maintaining healthy teeth and gums!

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. This helps you relax during your treatment.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
Indications for Nitrous Oxide
- Mildly apprehensive patient
- A frightened child

- To reduce dental stress
- To control gagging
- When requested by the patient
