Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide sedation (i.e. laughing gas) is offered at our clinic to help patients manage anxiety during dental procedures. This type of sedation is administered through the inhalation of a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen.
 
The strength of sedation is personally tailored to each patient’s needs. Nitrous oxide is a safe form of sedation as the patient is conscious and responsive throughout the procedure.
 
If sedation becomes too strong, nitrous can quickly be scaled back to reduce the effects. Another benefit of nitrous is it quickly exits the body within five minutes following the completion of treatment, allowing for a smooth and complete recovery. This means following nitrous oxide sedation, it is safe for patients to drive home and go about their day normally, unlike stronger forms of sedation, such as IV sedation.

Renew Dental is committed to providing a comfortable dental experience for all patients. We are trained and licensed to provide nitrous oxide for patients five years of age and older.

What Is Nitrous Oxide AKA Laughing Gas?

Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that's used as a sedative to help you relax during dental procedures. It's often called "laughing gas" because some people feel euphoric when it is administered..

Nitrous oxide sedation has been in use for more than 150 years and is considered to be one of the safest forms of sedation. It is also the most common form of sedation used in dental offices.

  • Good for multiple teeth – able to replace multiple teeth with one treatment
  • Eliminate gaps in the smile
  • Improve chewing and speaking ability
  • Restore confident social interaction and public speaking
  • Cost – lowest cost option for replacing teeth
  • Esthetics – can help rejuvenate patients' appearance, especially with complete dentures when facial tissues collapse.

Which Dental Procedures Are Used With Nitrous Oxide?

Almost any dental procedure can be done with nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is most commonly used for fillings, teeth cleanings, and other minor procedures such as tooth extractions.

It can also be used for more complex procedures such as root canals and dental implants.

Who Can Use Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide use is safe for most people. However, it's not recommended for pregnant women or people with certain medical conditions.

Your dentist will review your health history to see if nitrous oxide is a good option for you. Children who are 5 years old and older can receive nitrous oxide with parental consent.

How Is Nitrous Oxide Administered?

Nitrous oxide is administered through a small mask that fits over your nose. You'll breathe in the gas through your nose during your appointment. . The concentration of gas you receive will be based on your individual needs to reach a level of sedation you feel most comfortable at.

You will still be able to talk and respond to questions during the procedure, and you can stop receiving the gas at any time. Nitrous oxide is quickly eliminated from your body once you stop inhaling it, so you won't feel groggy or out of it after your appointment.

Is Nitrous Oxide Safe for Children?

Yes, nitrous oxide is safe for children. In fact, it's the most common form of sedation used in pediatric dental offices.
