Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a conscious sedative that provides safe and effective relief for children who get nervous in the dental chair. Dr. Brian Wah and his team will be sure to discuss the option of using nitrous oxide with any child’s parent or legal guardian before administering it. We strive to help every patient feel comfortable, and receiving a bit more help to get there is nothing your child should be embarrassed about. If you would like to learn more about how your child can be treated with nitrous oxide in Franklin, Tennessee, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our pediatric dentist by calling us today at 615-905-8920.
Does your child ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does their upcoming treatment make them feel anxious? If so, they may benefit from nitrous oxide sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gas that they inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As they breathe in the nitrous oxide, which is mixed with oxygen, they will experience a relaxed, euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help them feel calm and at ease throughout their treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe; the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove their nose mask.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If they feel 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 dentist and dental team before your visit so we can help you and your child feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
