    Is nitrous oxide sedation safe?

    Nitrous oxide is possibly the safest sedative in dentistry and has been used for over 100 years. Nitrous oxide is analgesic, works quickly, and doesn’t cause allergies. The level of sedation can be controlled by the concentration given to the patient by the dentist, and sedation can be terminated and reversed anytime by flushing the patient with oxygen. Nitrous oxide sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that patients will remain fully conscious during the treatment and responsive to questions while staying in a comfortable, relaxed state.
