Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, often called laughing gas, is a commonly used method to help children with mild to moderate anxiety during dental procedures. It’s administered through a small mask that fits over your child’s nose, offering an effective way to alleviate anxiety. During the procedure, your child will be asked to breathe through their nose, not their mouth. As the gas takes effect, your child will become calm, but they will still be awake and able to have a conversation with the dentist.

When your child’s appointment concludes, they will switch back to regular oxygen, and all the effects of nitrous oxide will wear off. As your child grows older and becomes more comfortable with dental visits, the use of nitrous oxide may no longer be necessary.
