Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) has be used for decades to relax anxious patients.

A small hood is placed over the nose through which a mixture of nitrous oxide is inhaled, this mixture will make you relaxed and sleepy.

A feeling of calm is experienced and dental procedures are ofthen more comfortable for anxious patients. A local anaesthetic is still required.

Nitrous oxide is safe for use on children and adults, although in preparation your medical history and current medications will be reviewed prior to administration of gas.

It is safe to drive and work after your sedation appointment as the effects of the nitrous oxide are short lived.
