Nitrous Oxide

Sometimes called “laughing gas” nitrous oxide is a medication inhaled through a nasal mask. Although patients likely won’t laugh, they often feel drowsy throughout their treatment. With this sedation, patients will remain conscious, relaxed, and responsive throughout their care. After treatment is done, the nitrous oxide is stopped, so only oxygen is breathed until the mask is removed. The effects will wear off quickly allowing you to drive yourself home.
