Ensure Your Child’s Comfort At The Dentist With Nitrous Oxide
At Bird Pediatric Dentistry in Charlotte, we understand that dental visits can be stressful and overwhelming for some children. To help make the experience easier, we offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, to help relax our patients during their appointments.
How does nitrous oxide work?
Nitrous oxide is a gas inhaled through a mask placed over your child’s face. It can help reduce anxiety and fear during your child’s dental visit. The effects of the nitrous oxide wear off quickly once the mask is removed, leaving patients feeling calm and relaxed.
What are the benefits of nitrous oxide sedation?
Nitrous oxide sedation is an effective and safe way to help relax children during their dental appointments. It also allows them to remain awake and lucid throughout the procedure, allowing for a quicker and easier process. Nitrous oxide is generally safe and does not typically cause significant side effects. Some patients may experience nausea or lightheadedness, but these effects usually wear off quickly.
Who should consider nitrous oxide sedation?
Nitrous oxide sedation may be beneficial for patients who suffer from dental anxiety, have special needs, or must undergo a more invasive procedure that requires more time.
