Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Child receiving nitrous oxide sedation dentistry treatment

Nitrous oxide is the mildest form of sedation and is best used on individuals who exhibit mild or moderate dental anxiety. Once the nasal mask is on and your child begins to breathe in the gas mixture, the effects will occur almost immediately. Once our team completes the needed procedure we turn off the gas, in which the effects will quickly dissipate, allowing your child to resume normal activity.

General Anesthesia Sedation Dentistry

For children who struggle with extreme dental anxiety, general anesthesia is an option. Because this type of sedation causes patients to fall asleep, they will remain completely calm and relaxed the entire time, allowing for a more comfortable experience.
