Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” can provide a safe and effective method of controlling your child’s pain and anxiety during dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the nose and works very rapidly. Your child will not fall asleep during the procedure and will remain fully conscious and verbally communicative. After the procedure is completed, we will administer your child 100% oxygen to immediately dissolve the effects of the nitrous oxide. The most common side effect is mild nausea but is otherwise very well-tolerated.
