Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide or Laughing gas is used in the form of a gas during dental procedures. Once discontinued in the office setting, the gas is almost immediately dissipated from the body within seconds. There are no prolonged side effects when using Nitrous Oxide, and normal activity can be resumed post dental procedure. However, the main concern lies with the effects of local anesthesia, and caution should be geared towards prevention of lip, tongue, and cheek biting as instructed by the dentist.
