Nitrous Oxide - “Laughing gas”
The use of Nitrous oxide has been shown as a safe, effective technique to reduce anxiety and decrease pain during a dental appointment. The child will still be awake and talking throughout. It has rapid onset and is flushed from the child’s system very quickly.
In Office Sedation
Our office utilizes pediatric anesthesiologists to administer general anesthesia to patients in our office. This is recommended for children with severe dental anxiety, children with special needs or those requiring extensive dental treatment.
