Laughing gas or nitrous oxide is used to help sedate and relax patients into going through any dental procedure. Local anesthetic must also be used and the gas will help people by altering their consciousness enough to have their work done. People will remain awake and alert but they become more accommodating for the procedure. It is used mostly because it is very safe.
