Laughing Gas Dentistry

Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is a safe and effective treatment, even for children. It’s used to sedate and calm patients who may feel anxious. For your child, it’s a relaxing and comfortable way to get through a dental procedure.

Your child will inhale nitrous oxide through a tiny mask placed over the nose. They should not experience any adverse effects. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, less than 0.5% of young patients have nausea or vomiting. We advise parents to keep their child from eating for two hours prior to the procedure so they don’t get sick while drowsy.
