Can I have laughing gas at my dental visits?

An excellent option to reduce nervousness: Laughing gas could be a great option for you if you are nervous about dental care.

A way to reduce a severe gag reflex: Nitrous oxide can also help reduce severe gag reflex, and is a great option for patients who have difficulties taking dental x-rays. 

Wears off by the time you leave the office: Unlike moderate sedation, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off within minutes, and you are free to go about your day normally afterward.

Won’t affect your memory. You will still have a memory of the procedure, but nitrous oxide will make your overall experience more pleasant.
