Also known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is commonly used to make pediatric dental treatments much more comfortable and dare we say enjoyable.
With the use of nitrous oxide, once anxiety causing procedures become worry-free and painless for kids (and their accompanying adults!).
Nitrous oxide is a safe gas that has been used for centuries and is easily inhaled through a mask. Quickly it creates a state of relaxation for the patient but unlike conscious sedation or general anesthesia it is not intended to put you to sleep.
Local anesthetic is always administered along with nitrous oxide to help eliminate pain during and after the procedure. Nitrous oxide helps make dental procedures a lot easier for our pediatric patients and their parents.
The caring team of professionals at Pediatric Dental Specialists of Western Colorado are dedicated to ensuring your child’s visit is as comfortable as possible. If a dental procedure is being considered for your child, sedation options will be thoroughly discussed with you and any questions you have resolved prior to the start of your care.
