It’s time you talked to us about nitrous oxide — a method of sedation that’s safe and effective for patients of all ages.
You might have heard of nitrous oxide referred to as “laughing gas.” It’s a safe, odorless gas that is mixed with oxygen and breathed in through a mask comfortably fitted over your nose. Nitrogen oxide works very well and fast, reaching the brain and bloodstream quickly. It will help you experience a soothing:
- Warmth throughout your body
- Feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and calm
- Dreamlike or sleepy state
Nitrous oxide is an excellent pain reliever, going to work within minutes of administration. It’s also extremely effective and safe. One of the biggest benefits our clients love about nitrous oxide is that there’s very little recovery time. It’s one of the few sedation methods where you can recover quickly and you’re generally able to drive yourself home following an appointment.
