Nitrous Oxide

Get Dr. Vocal’s Guide to Home Tooth & Gum Care

Nitrous oxide/oxygen or commonly known as “laughing gas” is used very commonly for patients to help them relax while receiving dental care. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is given through a small breathing mask which is placed over the patient’s nose, allowing them to relax, but without putting them to sleep. It is easily taken by normal breathing and is eliminated easily when we exhale.
