Is nitrous oxide (laughing gas) safe for my child?

Yes! Nitrous oxide is odorless and provides a very mild sedative effect to relax a child and help provide a positive dental experience. Our dental team has found that nitrous oxide and a favorite movie is a great combination in relieving anxiety and providing a needed distraction from the dental procedure. Nitrous oxide does not put your child to sleep and has a rapid onset and recovery. At the end of the dental procedure, your child will breathe 100 percent oxygen for five minutes, eliminating all effects of the nitrous oxide. There are no restrictions on activity or diet following administration of nitrous oxide.
