Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)


Phoenix, AZ

Nitrous oxide is a colorless gas that smells sweet and can be inhaled. For several years, nitrous oxide has been the basis of dental sedation. The patient is given 50-70 percent oxygen and no less than 30 percent nitrous oxide, which is considered safe. The patient can breathe on their own and retains the ability to control all of their body processes. The patient may have slight amnesia and fall asleep during their session, with no recollection of what happened.

Benefits Of Using Nitrous Oxide

Reasons You Should Not Use Nitrous Oxide

If you are suffering from a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you should avoid using nitrous oxide. Despite the fact that there are no other severe restrictions to using nitrous oxide, you should avoid it if you have emphysema, unusual chest problems, M.S., a cold, or other forms of respiratory distress.

Before continuing, you may wish to request a “5-minute trial” from your dentist to evaluate how you react to this sort of anesthesia.
