A flexible dental sedative, laughing gas or nitrous oxide, can be used for anything from cavity filling to teeth cleaning. Nitrous gas used by St Lucie Country dentists is a useful option for patients with dental anxiety or special needs that make it difficult to complete a dental operation. If you want to know how this gas can help you during your operation, here are some benefits of nitrous oxide.

Frequently Asked Questions About Nitrous Oxide

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Healthcare practitioners typically combine this sedative with additional medications to provide complete pain relief during more complicated oral surgery because it isn’t very potent. Dentists have employed nitrous oxide for many years to make dental procedures easier. This alternative is chosen because it is quick, safe, and effective.    

Uses of Nitrous Oxide

While nitrous oxide has few negative side effects, it operates and effects quickly. Medical staff can use nitrous oxide throughout various operations to relieve pain and calm nervous patients. The most typical applications for laughing gas include:  

  • Managing dental phobia  
  • Minimizing discomfort and pain  
  • Making dental procedures easier  

How Long Do Nitrous Oxide Effects Last?

Nitrous oxide has a sleepy impact on patients minutes after inhaled; after the gas is turned off, the effects will start to wear off. However, we advise bringing someone with you to avoid driving after the procedure.
