Laughing gas is the common term for Nitrous Oxide, a safe and mild method used during dental procedures. Your child will be awake and responsive throughout the procedure, in a more relaxed state.
Because this type of dentistry is short-lived with a gentle effect, it is often used for children. Nitrous oxide puts patients at ease to remain relaxed during dental procedures allowing the anxious child a more pleasant dental experience! At Children’s Dentistry of Fairfax, we customize each case individually and will discuss sedation only if necessary.
We are excited to meet you and care for all of your child’s dental needs!
