Free Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) During Treatment

by Linda McGuire RDH


Most dental offices offer Nitrous Oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, as an option during dental treatment, but the majority of those offices charge for the use of the gas.  In our office, you will be given the option to use Nitrous during treatments and cleanings at NO CHARGE to you!  We feel that it’s very important to offer our patients comfort during treatment in a relaxing atmosphere. We also offer noise canceling headphones to listen to music and the special paw of one of our therapy dogs to hold your hand through the entire process if you would like.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

  • Rapid onset of about 20 seconds to reach the brain and 2-3 minutes to start feeling relaxed and pain free
  • The effect can be increased or decreased rather rapidly, the change happens almost instantly
  • Nitrous can be given for the exact duration it’s needed and doesn’t last long after the treatment is complete
  • You can drive immediately following treatment because there is no long lasting effect and it leaves your body very rapidly
  • There is no “hangover” effect
  • Can reduce or eliminate severe gagging
  • No injection is required to feel the effect of Nitrous Oxide
  • Nitrous is very safe. It has very few side effects and the drugs used have no ill effects on the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, or brain.

How will nitrous make me feel?

  • Relaxed and calm
  • Unconcerned
  • Happy
  • Slightly numb
  • Disconnected

Nitrous can be a great tool to relieve dental anxiety and fear. We feel that it’s important for all of our patients to feel comfortable here in our office and are more than happy to provide you with Nitrous Oxide during your dental treatment FREE OF CHARGE!
