Is an upcoming treatment making your child feel anxious? If so, he or she may benefit from nitrous oxide sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide is safe and has been used by many dental offices for years for children and adults alike! To learn more about how nitrous oxide in Mesa, Arizona, can make your child’s visit to Desert Sun Pediatric Dentistry easier, call 480-275-5099 today to plan a visit with our pediatric dentist, Dr. J. Cam West.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that your child inhales through a nose mask during their treatment. As they breathe in the nitrous oxide, they will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help them feel calm and at ease throughout the treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove the mask, and your child can resume their normal activities.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If your child feels anxious because they are receiving a treatment they have not experienced before, or if they simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help them feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our pediatric dentist and team before your child’s visit so we can help your child feel more comfortable during their treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
