This is also known as laughing gas, although you won’t actually keep laughing out loud the whole time it’s administered. Instead, it will help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a type of conscious sedation that leaves you awake during your dental procedure. Its effects also leave the body quickly, so you’re able to drive right after your dental appointment.
This is recommended for those who are overly anxious about a dental procedure (or about being in a dental office in general). It is not suitable for pregnant patients or for those with respiratory problems.
