Nitrous Oxide (also known as Laughing Gas) is available in our office, at no charge to you. It is inhaled through a nose piece and the effects start with a few seconds, but last about 5 minutes after removed. Nitrous Oxide often times makes people feel happy and calm. It can also make your child a little sleepy. Nitrous Oxide isn’t always necessary during treatment but it is a wonderful tool to help reduce a child’s anxiety.
Please do not hesitate to ask Dr. Wall or our staff any questions you may have about the necessity, effects, or safety of laughing gas.
