Nitrous Oxide -"Laughing Gas"
Nitrous oxide (N20) is commonly called "laughing gas." It helps to relieve anxiety during dental procedures. When used for mild (conscious) sedation, nitrous oxide may make you feel relaxed, warm, pleasant and/or happy. Nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep. You can still respond to your dentist's requests and answer questions. The effects of nitrous oxide are completely reversible and you will feel back to normal at the end of the procedure.
