Nitrous "Laughing Gas"
Nitrous, or laughing gas, is a safe and effective way to reduce children's anxiety and pain during dental procedures. It is a sedative that works by calming the central nervous system. It is not a painkiller, but it can help to make the child more comfortable and relaxed during the procedure.
Nitrous is administered through a mask that the child wears over their nose and mouth. Our pediatric dentist will adjust the gas flow to provide the child with the desired level of sedation. The child will feel a pleasant, relaxed feeling and may even giggle or laugh. They will still be aware of what is happening but feel less anxious and pain.
