Nitrous Oxide dentistry in Idaho Falls, or laughing gas dentistry as it is commonly known, is a great technique for keeping nervous kids calm. A mask is placed over the child’s nose and Nitrous Oxide is breathed in to create a calming effect for the patient. The gas allows the child to relax while still remaining awake.
Your children will be able to follow simple instructions and respond to questions. Once the mask is removed, the effects stop almost immediately. Nitrous oxide is a very mild gas that is safe for children. If your kid is nervous or has anxiety you can read more about Your Child’s First Dental Visit.
