Safe Nitrous Oxide for Dental Treatment

Dental Sedation in Kirkland, IL - White Oak DentalWe want to make all our patients as comfortable as possible at White Oak Dental. Sometimes, patients need a bit of extra help with relaxation, and that’s where nitrous oxide comes in. Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is an odorless substance that dentists have used for many decades. It produces a mild euphoric and anesthetic effect, so it’s ideal for dental treatment.

Nitrous oxide is safe for both children and adults. It can help relieve anxiety, and it is easily reversed with just a few minutes of breathing normal air. You can drive safely after treatment with nitrous oxide, and the gas is not habit-forming.
