Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

From Fear to Euphoria

Sedation dentistry can put you at ease and virtually eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.

Benefits of nitrous oxide

  • It's effective for mild to moderate anxiety 
  • It has a proven safety record
  • It offers an analgesic (pain relieving) effect
  • It's quick-acting, with few side effects
  • You don't need someone to escort you to and from the office
  • You can return to normal activities immediately
  • In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit

Also called inhalation conscious sedation, nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used sedation method in dentistry. Under nitrous oxide, you remain conscious and will enjoy a sense of total well-being (euphoria). Patients generally recover quickly and can usually leave the office unescorted.

Nitrous oxide will put you at ease so you experience little to no discomfort; however, we will also administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don't experience any pain. At this point in the procedure you'll be so relaxed that you'll hardly even notice.

Don't let fear keep you from having a healthy, sparking smile. Dr. Guttman has the expertise, skills and training to put even the most anxious patient at ease. Contact us today at 310-827-5094 and get ready to enjoy a totally relaxed experience.
