Laughing gas is a very safe and effective sedative agent to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. The dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. Kids often begin to feel its effects after breathing the gas for as little as 2-5 minutes. Some kids experience mild lightheadedness. Others get the giggles. The effects of the gas only last a short time. It wears off quickly once we discontinue its administration. Before the appointment, we advise that kids have had nothing to eat or drink for at least two hours. This helps reduce the chance of them having a large vomit while they are drowsy.
