Nitrous oxide is popularly known as laughing gas, and is used in medical and dental anesthesiology frequently across the globe. Ideal for dental procedures that can be completed within a short duration, nitrous oxide when inhaled through a tube/face mask connected to a cylinder, induced analgesic effects. Like oral sedative agents, nitrous oxide gas also ensures a comfortable, anxiety-free and painless procedure till the end. The rapid action of the gas induces the desired analgesic effects within 25 seconds or less. Depending upon the age, weight and medical history of the patient, the amount of gas administered can be manually controlled to avoid overdose. It is the ideal form of sedation for patients who have a phobia of needles. Apart from excellent analgesic and anesthetic effects, nitrous oxide also induces a feeling of euphoria that makes the dental procedure a pleasant one for the patient as well as the dentist.
