Although many children are comfortable with dental procedures, some very young children or those with a level of anxiety that prevents coping skills may need additional support. Nitrous oxide (often known as "laughing gas") is a good option in this case.
- Nitrous oxide is perhaps the safest form of sedation used in dentistry today.
- It is non-addictive, mild, easily taken and quickly eliminated by the body.
- During the sedation, the child will remain fully conscious, keeping all natural reflexes.
