Many patients immediately know that they want nitrous oxide for a relaxing dental visit. However, what many patients do not know with such clarity is whether they qualify for sedation dentistry. The good news is that laughing gas is extremely safe and gentle, which makes it an appropriate sedation option for many different types of needs and people.
