Nitrous gas is considered the safest sedative that is being used in the dental industry. Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, is totally adjustable, so the right dose is given for your child. Nitrous is a safe and effective way to help calm anxious children down and ensure that their experience in the dentists’ chair isn’t stressful or uncomfortable. The gas itself helps diminish the gag reflex, and children are less likely to feel the need to vomit during treatment. After treatment is over, the special nose piece will remain on the nose, but instead of delivering nitrous, it delivers oxygen to effectively reverse the effects of the gas. Your child leaves the office with no side effects, and can go right back to school or the playground immediately.
