Nitrous oxide is an extremely safe, odorless gas that, when inhaled, works rapidly to relieve anxiety and pain and will help you feel at ease. Some patients report feelings of giddiness or euphoria, hence the nickname “laughing gas.” You will be awake and able to respond to and ask questions. The effects of nitrous oxide will wear off shortly after you stop inhaling the sedative gas. This means that you will be able to safely drive yourself home following your appointment.
