So, to help you find the answers you’re looking for and to help you know more about nitrous oxide in Kenner, Louisiana, our dentist is happy to share the following nitrous oxide facts with you:
-Nitrous oxide is a colorless, non-flammable gas. It contains nitrogen and oxide, which gives the gas the N2O formula. This gas has a slight metallic smell and taste.
-Nitrous oxide can also be called laughing gas or nitrous.
-Nitrous oxide will enter your system through the nose. A mask will release the nitrous. All you need to do is wear the mask over the nose. As you deeply inhale, the gas enters your system and starts to do its work.
-Nitrous oxide won’t make you sleep. In fact, you will stay awake and responsive during the treatment. The nitrous will make you feel calm, relaxed and happy.
-The effects of nitrous oxide will wear off quickly. As soon as the mask is removed from your nose, you will begin to feel back to normal. This makes it possible to drive yourself home after your appointment.
-Nitrous oxide is safe for you and your body.
