The side effects of nitrous oxide are it kills pain – and it induces a pleasurable feeling. After 5 minutes or so of breathing in the gas, you should feel a euphoric feeling spread throughout your body. You may feel a ‘happy drunk’ feeling. Some people find that there are auditory or visual effects as well. You will feel a bit light headed and often people get ‘the giggles’. Which it is why it is called laughing gas sometimes!
It is completely safe and has been used since the 1800’s. Just let your dentist know before you get there that you are feeling abit nervous and would like to have some before your appointment! You will feel relaxed and ready in minutes.
