What Is Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)?

Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is administered through a mask placed over your nose. It is often called “laughing gas” because it can produce feelings of euphoria and relaxation, although it doesn’t typically induce laughter.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?

Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through the nose during dental procedures. It helps patients feel more comfortable and less anxious while remaining conscious and able to respond to the dentist’s instructions.
