If your child experiences anxiety during a visit to the dentist, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) may be recommended to allow us to safely provide dental treatment. Nitrous oxide does not induce sleep or unconsciousness, but rather promotes relaxation which allows performing dental procedures easier and less stressfull.
The pediatric dentist will assess the particular needs of your child and determine if they would benefit from nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide will help them remain calm, relaxed and cooperative during the process. If you have questions, please ask and we’ll be happy to provide you with the information you need.
