If it's what I think you mean, it is to relax you. Believe me it will! It sure does me anyway. When they're finished working on you, they give you oxygen to help wake you up. It really isn't bad at all. I have always driven to my appointment and back home.

I always refused the gas. Too afraid of what I might say under the influence But I'm sure you'll be fine. My sister takes the gas and she does fine. Might as well rather than suffer thru it with just novocane.

I love gas. Unfortunately my dentist doesn't use it. It makes you feel very relaxed and will put a smile on your face. I don't know how much it will help the gagging though. I have a very bad gag reflex. I just had a root canal on a back molar and it was difficult. One thing that helped was lifting my legs in the air. I know it sounds odd, but it worked. I found that info here on the board. There was a post about gagging and a link to all sorts of solutions. Maybe you can search for it or a moderator can lead you to it. Good luck, going to the dentist is no fun, especially with our small sclero mouths!
