Many people wonder many things about nitrous oxide. This means there are commonly asked questions that your dentist answers regularly about nitrous oxide. To help you find the answers you need, he is happy to answer those questions here:
Q: What is nitrous oxide?
A: Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound that is a colorless, non-flammable gas at room temperature. It also has a slight metallic taste and smell. It is delivered through a gas mask that is placed over your nose. All you need to do is deeply inhale the gas for it to start working its magic.
Q: How will nitrous oxide make me feel?
A: The gas should make you feel light headed, tingly and calm. In fact, it can help wash dental nerves and anxiety away. It can help you feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair all while keeping you awake during treatment.
Q: How long will nitrous oxide last?
A: The effects will only last as long as you have the mask over your nose. Once it is removed, you will begin to feel normal once again. You can even drive yourself home.
