More commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is a safe anesthetic administered throughout a number of dental procedures. Laughing gas is one of many types of anesthetics used in sedation dentistry. Laughing gas is effective at relieving anxiety without the need for sedation, and the effects subside immediately after the nitrous oxide is turned off, enabling you to drive home after the dental procedure.
