Today I just wanted to do a little PSA and talk about laughing gas. We have laughing gas in the office but sometimes people feel a little uncomfortable to ask about it or they don’t necessarily want to bring it up. This is a totally judgement free zone. Laughing gas is a great adjunct for anything. Some people like to use it for cleaning. Sometimes they only want it if they’re having a filling. The choice is up to you. Patients usually describe it as the feeling like they had a glass of wine or two before coming into the office. Just a little floaty, a little tipsy, but able to talk and understand everything. At the end we turn off the laughing gas and turn up the oxygen. That all flows through and you are able to leave the office, drive, and do everything as normal. So if you’re just a little bit nervous, don’t hesitate to ask us about it.
