For a safe, and easy way of helping you or your child relax in the dental chair, why not talk to Dr. Bob Johnson about nitrous oxide? Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is mixed with oxygen and administered to the patient through a mask placed over the nose. You will feel very relaxed during your procedure, but you will remain awake and alert, and will be able to interact with the dental team. The eﬀects of nitrous oxide wear oﬀ within seconds after the gas is removed, and you will be able to drive home and resume your normal activities after your procedure. Nitrous oxide has been used by dentists for centuries, and many dentists prefer using it when sedation is required for children.
