Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide is also known as “laughing gas.” It is sometimes referred to as a conscious sedative because instead of putting you to sleep, it just induces a state of relaxation where you won’t experience pain or anxiety during your treatment. Unlike other types of sedation, nitrous oxide requires little preparation, and its effects wear off quickly after the treatment is complete, meaning you can generally plan on driving yourself to and from your appointment.
