Nitrous Oxide

We understand that due to past experiences or the idea of having to go to the dentist can create a level of anxiety. At Pahlavani Dental we do offer nitrous oxide also know as laughing gas. We can administer to adults and even children. This helps patient’s relax while being awake during the appointment. After 5 minutes or so of breathing in the gas, you should feel a euphoric feeling spread throughout your body. The gas is eliminated from the body within minutes after the gas supply is stopped. You can drive home after with no escort. There’s no “hangover” effect either! 

Nitrous oxide is so safe we can use it on pregnant patient’s after their first trimester. You can not be allergic to nitrous oxide and the contraindications are minimal to none.
