Sedation Dentistry

Image
Nitrous Oxide SedationBreath in – breath out and relax. Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as “laughing gas,” can make your treatment more comfortable. This sedation is taken in through a mask that allows you to simply breathe in the medication that produces a sense of relaxation. Local anesthetic will then be administered together with the nitrous oxide to eliminate pain in most cases.
