Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective form of sedation for kids, and it is also known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is a good option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If your child feels anxious because they are receiving a treatment, or if they simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help them feel more relaxed.

We encourage you to call us at (805) 985-2400 if you have questions about nitrous oxide. Our team at Sugarbug Dental can explain its effects and determine whether your child is a good candidate for nitrous oxide.
