For mild dental stress, nitrous oxide can provide a calm, relaxed experience. Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide creates a euphoric state during dental treatments. The sedative is mild – the patient is awake and aware the entire process. After the procedure, a few breaths of fresh air will dissipate the effects. This is a good option for those that want a clear head quickly after sedation.
