Happy Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your child’s teeth. Your child’s response to their dental experiences can make a lasting impression – a positive experience will help your child feel confident when visiting a dentist. Some children may be unable, because of fear or inability to cope with dental treatments, or may make uncontrolled movements that could cause injury to the child. Others may develop such a fear that they will have trouble cooperating during future visits or even refuse treatment. These children may be more comfortable and safe with some level of sedation.
Nitrous oxide is also called “laughing gas” because it creates a sense of well-being and happiness. It also reduces the gag reflex and gently numbs the teeth and gums.
