The Pronox System


Nitrous Oxide for Pain Management

Sit back and relax during your next treatment.

ProNox is an innovative analgesia system that involves the use of a patient-controlled, 50/50 combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This FDA-approved system blocks pain sensors and endorphins in the brain to help control pain and anxiety during your treatment.

Results are felt within 1-3 minutes and patients are safe to drive home just 5 minutes after treatment.

What to Expect

  • diamond


    Your provider will prepare you for your treatment. We will explain how the ProNox system works and provide you with your one-time-use mouthpiece.

  • diamond


    You begin self-administering your ProNox by inhaling normally through the mouthpiece and will start to feel its effects within 1-3 minutes. ProNox is not anesthesia and will not put you “to sleep” - it will just relax you. You can continue inhaling the ProNox as much or as little as you wish.

    Once your treatment is over, you simply need to wait for 5-10 minutes for the ProNox to wear off before driving home.
