Nitrous Oxide and Conscious Oral Sedation


Nitrous Oxide and Conscious Oral Sedation

Dr. Fontes offers Nitrous Oxide “Laughing Gas” and Conscious Oral Sedation during dental treatment. These can help reduce a child’s anxiety and help them better cooperate for dental care.

It is important to understand that nitrous oxide may not be an effective treatment choice for young children who cannot breathe through their nose consistently.

For more information about nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia please visit the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry website. http://www.aapd.org/
