Our dentists, Dr. Jay Boyle and Dr. Kimberly Boyle, offer nitrous oxide in Mechanicsville, Virginia, to help you and many other patients have the positive and comfortable dental appointments you deserve. To help you know more about this handy sedative, our dentists are happy to share some nitrous oxide facts. The more you know, the better. Those facts are:

-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 will not put you to sleep. It will make you feel calm, relaxed and happy all while allowing you to understand your dentists and respond to them.

-The effects of nitrous oxide will dissipate quickly. In fact, when you take the mask off your nose, you will start to feel normal once again. This means you will be able to drive yourself home after the appointment.

-Our nitrous oxide is completely safe to use.
