Tell me about Nitrous Oxide
Patient administered nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is a colorless, odorless gas that is used during procedures for relaxation and anxiety relief. It is opioid-free and non-addictive.
When inhaled nitrous oxide can induce feelings of euphoria and sedation. It also can produce sensations of drowsiness, warmth, and tingling in the hands, feet, and mouth. It will not induce unconsciousness in the office setting. You will be able to swallow, talk, and converse as needed. Sedation with nitrous oxide has limitations and risks; absolute success cannot be guaranteed, but you will be able to rationally respond to questions and directions. For some people nitrous oxide sedation may not calm them adequately to allow a medical procedure to be performed. These people may require a referral for other sedation techniques.
Nitrous oxide was first discovered in 1772 and was first used in dentistry in the 1860’s. Today, it is used in every dental office, but has expanded to emergency rooms and physician offices, especially plastic surgery offices.
