Nitrous Oxide and Sedation

Nitrous – Laughing Gas

Nitrous oxide is a very important service provided at Young Kidz Dental.  Undergoing dental treatment is not always an easy thing for children. Often the most difficult part of a dental visit is the child’s anxiety, and resultant negative behaviors. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” is a very common, effective sedative used to create a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Effective – rapid onset and reversible

In-Office Sedation

Due to age, extent of dental decay, or extreme anxiety, some children require their dental treatment to be completed while they sleep. In the past, this kind of treatment was restricted to a hospital setting which was inconvenient and often expensive. Now, medical anesthesiologists can bring their anesthesia supplies, equipment, and drugs directly to the dental office providing a safe, reliable, and cost-efficient service for the dental patients.

The anesthesiologist will evaluate each patient’s medical needs and determine the most appropriate type of anesthesia. He will provide continuous monitoring during the case and give all the appropriate pre and post operative care for the complete treatment of your child.
