Downtown Dental

Do you offer "laughing gas"?

Absolutely! When scheduling your appointment, just let Natalie know you’d like nitrous oxide, and we will take care of the rest when you come in.

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe way to completely alleviate your dental anxiety while in the dental chair.

Using nitrous is quick and easy: You simply breathe in the gas from a mask, and it immediately puts you in a euphoric state. You will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings, and you will be able to converse with Dr. Rathke and his team during the procedure. But your worries about the treatment you are undergoing will be minimized so you can just relax.

During your procedure, the amount of nitrous oxide you are getting will be carefully monitored. Afterward, the mask will be removed and, almost as quickly, the effects of the nitrous oxide will leave your body. This is great news for people who need to return to work or drive themselves home. It is perfectly safe to do so.

Don’t hesitate to ask us about nitrous oxide before your next appointment. Our goal is to make your time in the dental chair as comfortable as possible!
