Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is used for its calming effect. It’s a colourless, almost odourless gas that is combined with oxygen then administered to you through a small mask that covers your nose. It relaxes you, making you feel more comfortable during your dental treatment. The more deeply you breathe through your nose, the more you’ll feel the effects of nitrous. We can also adjust the levels to make you more comfortable.
On the day of your appointment, a companion will take you to the office. Upon arrival you’ll take a pill, then an experienced clinical team member will make certain that you’re relaxed and completely comfortable. We will monitor you very closely throughout the entire procedure. Many patients feel NO DISCOMFORT whatsoever during and after treatment, and have little or no memory of the visit.
