Nitrous oxide is a handy sedative our dentist, Dr. Debora Bolton, uses to make sure you have a positive and successful dental appointment. To help you know more about nitrous oxide in Durham, North Carolina, so you can better understand the sedative, our dental team is happy to share some nitrous oxide facts. Those facts are:
-Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound that is a colorless, non-flammable gas that has a slight metallic scent and taste.

-Nitrous oxide effects will wear away once you take the mask off your nose. This means you can drive yourself home after the appointment.
