Nitrous Oxide is commonly known as laughing gas. We offer nitrous oxide as an adjunct to anesthesia to enhance patient comfort and relieve anxiety for patients of all ages. Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through a face mask. We will control the amount of nitrous you receive to ensure your safety. You will begin to relax and will not recognize pain, so Dr. Mendez and associates can perform your dental treatment and root canal while you stay completely comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide subside once we remove your mask and you will be capable of driving yourself home following the visit and can continue your daily activities as normal.
