Laughing Gas Dentist Porter Ranch – Nitrous Oxide
Have a pain-free and stress-free dental visit
Dentists typically administer local or general anesthetics for pain management during most dental procedures. However, these anesthetics don’t relieve the emotional nervousness or anxiety certain patients may feel beforehand. That is why dentists will offer their patients the option to receive laughing gas for relaxation purposes.
What is Laughing Gas?
The scientific name for laughing gas is nitrous oxide; an optional sedative gas agent used to calm patients if they feel anxious about a particular oral procedure, such as tooth extractions or dental fillings.
Our laughing gas dentist in Porter Ranch can offer you a laughing gas sedative before performing our dental procedures. First, a breathing mask will get put over your face. Then, you’ll inhale a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide to receive the sedative effect. It is fast, simple, and effective.

Benefits of getting oral sedation with laughing gas at our Porter Ranch office:
1) Easy to Relax
Ultra nervous patients with dental phobias are prime candidates to receive laughing gas. Nitrous oxide works quickly to make patients feel calmer and more relaxed. It will happen literally within seconds after inhaling the gas.
2) No Downtime
Nitrous oxide wears off rather quickly, so you won’t have any downtime to worry about after consuming laughing gas for a dental procedure. You can go back to doing your normal daily activities.
3) No Needles
If you don’t like needles, you will be happy to know that administering nitrous oxide doesn’t require the use of any needles. All you have to do is breathe in the gases from a breathing mask put over your nose and mouth.
4) Safe for Children
Nitrous oxide is safe for children to consume because dentists mix a certain amount of oxygen with nitrous oxide to make it safe for them. Since children often feel the most anxiety at dental offices, laughing gas is the perfect solution.
5) High Success Rate
Laughing gas has been administered to more than two billion dental patients worldwide. It is a safe and effective sedative because the dentist closely monitors the gas quantity administered to prevent overconsumption.
