Nitrous Oxide Sedation, more commonly known as laughing gas, decreases anxiety and promotes relaxation while you remain conscious. Nitrous oxide and oxygen are mixed together and then inhaled through a mask that covers the nose prior to having a dental procedure performed to produce sensations of lightheadedness, relaxation, and a comfortable, warm-all-over feeling. Safe, effective, and non-invasive, nitrous oxide is the sedation method of choice for anxious or fearful patients.
Prior to your appointment :
It is advised that your child does not eat or drink 2 hours prior to the appointment.
Please inform us of any change to your child's health and/or medical condition. Tell us about any respiratory condition that makes breathing through the nose difficult for your child. It may limit the effectiveness of the nitorus oxide/oxygen.
Let us know if your child is taking any medications on the day of the appointment.
