Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide / Laughing Gas

nitrous_oxide1.jpgThe lightest form of sedation that Aurora Dental offers is Nitrous Oxide Sedation. Nitrous oxide is breathed in through a soft nosepiece during your dental appointment. After just a few minutes, patients begin to feel warm, tingly and much more relaxed. Some people even experience a mild case of the giggles. Once the dental procedure is over, the patient is placed back onto 100% oxygen for 5 minutes. This purges the nitrous portion of the gas from the respiratory system.

It is completely safe to drive yourself home or go back to work after receiving nitrous oxide. The gas does not have any lingering sedative effects that will impact your normal daily activities.


We typically recommend nitrous oxide for patients who:

  • Are slightly nervous about their dental visit
  • Have sensitive teeth
  • Need deep cleanings or minor restorative treatments
  • Haven’t had dental work completed in a long time


We can add nitrous oxide onto any dental visit, even if you haven’t planned for it in advance. Our goal is to keep you comfortable throughout every procedure. Feel free to request nitrous during any procedure at Aurora Dental.
