What is nitrous oxide?

Our goal at Rainier Dental Center is to ensure you leave our office with a smile each and every time you visit. We understand that many of our patients have fears and anxiety when they think about the dentist’s office. To help ease your mind and guarantee your comfort, we provide high-quality nitrous oxide in Seattle, Washington.

Nitrous oxide is also referred to as laughing gas because of the pleasant feeling it produces. Mixed with oxygen and inhaled through your nose, nitrous oxide is a form of conscious sedation. This means that you remain awake and in full control of your faculties during treatment, but you will not experience any anxiety. Many patients even have a hard time remembering the treatment itself.

Is nitrous oxide safe?

Nitrous oxide is safe to use, and since you will remain awake during the treatment, you will be able to communicate how you are feeling to Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta and our dental team. The effects of nitrous oxide also wear off quickly, allowing you to leave our office with a bright, happy smile.
