Nitrous oxide therapy or “laughing gas” is a mild sedative that is commonly used in dentistry. It is a colorless and odorless gas that is administered through a small mask over your nose. This allows you to achieve a level of relaxation as well as reduce pain during the procedure in Evanston, IL. Nitrous oxide is not addictive and exits the body within a few minutes.
