Dr. Kevin Daus
Obstetrics & Gynecology
In brief: Nitrous
In the old days they used nitrous in labor so it has a safety track record.
However, why would you want to use this medication when a local anesthetic would do the trick. I bet if your dentist knew the pregnancy, they would not use it because here in georgia, the dentist make the pregnant patient get a consent from the ob. Hope this helps in some small way.
