Nitrous Oxide


We offer Nitrous Oxide if your child is overly anxious.Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that will help your child relax. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over their nose.

Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option we may offer to help make your child more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put them to sleep. Your child will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions we may have. Our doctor will ask them to breathe normally through their nose, and within a few short minutes they should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. Your child may feel light-headed or a tingling in their arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, your child should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for your family at your next appointment.
