Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a common, safe, and convenient way to help children who experience mild anxiety receive the dental treatment they need without fear. It also helps well-behaving children cooperate for longer treatment appointments. Once treatment is complete, the laughing gas will be completely out of their system within a few minutes.
If your child is anxious, has special needs, or is unable to relax with the laughing gas, we can help with sedation dentistry. We have had extensive training in sedation options including oral sedation and general anesthesia at the hospital when needed. We always follow the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for the administration of sedation and general anesthesia.
