Nitrous oxide has been used to help anxious dental patients for over 100 years, and that’s because it’s safe and effective for people of all ages, including small children! The gas is inhaled through a small nasal mask, and it causes feelings of happiness, calmness, and makes someone become slightly numb all over. The mask stays on the entire time, and once it’s removed, a patient will feel completely normal within a few minutes.
