Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas)

Nitrous Oxide is a very safe sedative that will calm nervous children, while still allowing them to be awake and able to talk with the dentist.

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a very safe sedative that allows a mildly nervous child to become calm but still awake and able to talk to the dentist. A mask is placed over the child’s face and as they breathe through their nose, the child relaxes. The effects wear off very quickly when the gas is turned off.
