Nitrous oxide/oxygen has been safely used in dentistry for well over 100 years. It is safe and effective for patients of all ages. Quick administration through a nasal hood eliminates the need for medication before entering the dental office. The effects wear off quickly, allowing patients to continue with day-to-day activities. Gag reflexes are temporarily decreased, which increases patient comfort.

The How*

The tasteless, odorless gases are safely administered to the patient through a scavenging circuit and controlled by a trained professional. Single-use nasal hoods in a variety of scents and sizes are placed on the patient’s nose, and the patient simply breathes in the mixture. The Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen mixture safely and effectively relaxes patients while providing comfort during a variety of procedures.
