Some cases of dental treatment require sedation for which Nitrous oxide is administered. Nitrous oxide, also called as laughing gas is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a mask before the dental procedure begins. Nitrous oxide is different from general anaesthesia and is intended only to ease dental anxiety and remain calm- hence this is considered to be a very safe agent for adults as well as children.
Patients and caregivers are educated about the concentration and dosage of administration and are assured that all natural reflexes are retained.
