Our dentist and team offer nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, to enhance your comfort and reduce stress during dental procedures. This safe and effective sedation option allows you to relax throughout your treatment, making your dental experience here at Seattle Smiles Company more pleasant.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas that you inhale through a small mask placed over your nose. It is a popular sedation choice for both children and adults because it works rapidly to ease anxiety and pain. The effects of the gas are mild and can be easily controlled by our dental team, that adjusts the flow to suit your comfort level throughout the procedure.

What to Expect With Nitrous Oxide

The procedure begins with you breathing normally through a mask. Almost immediately, you will start to feel a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. You may also feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. These effects are normal and indicate that the sedation is working. Throughout the procedure, you will remain awake and able to communicate with our dental team. Once the treatment is over, the effects of the gas wear off quickly, usually within minutes, allowing you to resume your normal activities without any downtime.
