Nitrous oxide inhalation sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) is a technique in use for many years in the United States, Canada and various European countries. The administration of oxygen and nitrous oxide induces a relaxed feeling, reducing emotional stress. Anxiety and pain perception are reduced, increasing the amenability of the patient and facilitating collaboration with the dentist.
