Nitrous Oxide – Nothing To Laugh At

Plenty of people feel nervous or anxious at the dentist’s office. At Philadelphia Dental Smiles, we use safe and effective Nitrous oxide to boost your comfort levels and ease your nerves.

What Is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a body-safe gas. It is both colorless and odorless. In dentistry, it is used for minor pain and stress relief. It is administered through a mask that goes over your mouth and nose and you breathe it in as you relax in the chair. The stream of nitrous oxide that enters your body is mixed with oxygen. Some call it “Laughing Gas” for the euphoric sensation it can bring on.

How We Use Nitrous Oxide at Philadelphia Dental Smiles

Here at Philadelphia Dental Smiles, we commit ourselves to making our patients as comfortable as possible. We offer Nitrous oxide as an option for patients who feel dentist-related anxiety. This helps you to remain calm and relaxed during your appointment or procedure.

Our dental team is trained in the proper use of the gas. First, we’ll help you determine if Nitrous oxide is right for you, and if it is, we’ll talk you through the process.

Is Nitrous Oxide Safe?

The Nitrous oxide you receive at Philadelphia Dental Smiles is safe and well-monitored. Our dental staff will administer the gas in small amounts. By starting with low levels, we can decide the perfect level for each patient. We work with you to ensure the utmost comfort.

Can You Drive After Nitrous Oxide?

The effects wear off a few minutes after stopping the administration of Nitrous oxide, and because of this, it is safe to drive after use.
