What is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous oxide is one of the most common forms of dental sedation. Safe for children of all ages, nitrous oxide sedation is administered through a mask that is placed over the nose. Within minutes of wearing the mask, your child will begin to feel relaxed and at ease. Not bothered by surrounding sounds or smells, your child will be able to feel comfortable throughout their entire visit. Once their visit is complete, the mask will be removed and the effects of sedation will begin to wear away. Your child will be able to resume their normal activities following their visit.
