Nitrous oxide is a compound of nitrogen and oxygen. When inhaled through a nose mask, it induces a calm, relaxed feeling. This is why dentists often recommend it to patients who struggle with dental anxieties or phobias.
You can learn more about nitrous oxide by watching the accompanying video. The dentist featured here explains that nitrous oxide is safe for patients of all ages. Although nitrous oxide is a form of sedation dentistry, it doesn’t cause patients to lose consciousness. Plus, its effects are short-lived, which means patients do not require any recovery time after receiving nitrous oxide.
