Nitrous Oxide ("Laughing Gas")

We understand anxiety about dental care is no laughing matter, so we’re happy to provide nitrous oxide sedation commonly called “laughing gas.”

Nitrous Oxide helps you relax or stay calm and comfortable as your dental care is completed and wears off almost instantly – which means you will not need a driver following the procedure. It’s a great option for patients of all ages.
