At my son's appointment I was not aware that laughing gas was not suggested for pregnant women; I had let them know I'm 17wks pregnant at his last appointment and no one told me. I'd like to know what the risks are of something happening. We were in the room a total of forty minutes with the gas and neither the dentist or assistant seems concerned about it
There should be no way it dispersed enough into the air that you would get any effect from it. The dentist and assistant work around it all day. If it was leaking into the room air they'd probably have a time working. There has to be a specific concentration of it to cause sedation or any other effect, and only the person with the mask is going to get that.
