Is Nitrous Oxide Safe for Your Child?

As a parent, we know that you're always looking out for the safety of your child. So when it comes to their kids dental needs, is nitrous oxide a safe choice for your child? The quick answer is yes, nitrous oxide is safe for kids dental care. But we know that the question is more complex than that.

What Is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas," is an odorless gas that is breathed in through the nose. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for children for many years and is considered a very safe sedative agent. In fact, the first uses of nitrous oxide used for dentistry date back to the 1800s.
Nitrous oxide works by slowing down the nervous system, which can help kids feel more relaxed. The gas is also effective in reducing pain and anxiety.

Why Use Nitrous Oxide for Children?

Nitrous oxide is often used to help kids feel more comfortable during their dental appointment, especially if they're having a procedure done like a filling or a tooth extraction. During kids dental procedures, this tool helps reduce anxiety and makes kids feel more comfortable during their visit. In addition, it can help make the procedure go more quickly.

How We Use Nitrous Oxide at Kids Choice Dental

At Kids Choice Dental, we use nitrous oxide for kids of all ages. We have found that it is especially helpful for kids who are anxious or have a fear of the dentist. On top of that, nitrous oxide is safe and has no lasting side effects. After the procedure, your child will be able to breathe normally and, if they're old enough, they can even drive themselves home after their appointment!

If you are considering kids dental treatment for your child, please call Kids Choice Dental today to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to answer any of your questions about nitrous oxide or any other aspect of dentistry for children. Schedule an appointment today!
