For treatments that may last longer or cause more discomfort, we will often recommend a mild oral sedative that your child can take before treatment. Every effort is made to ensure proper dosage and limit mild side effects if any.
We use NO2 “Laughing Gas”, sometimes called “laughing gas,” to help children become more comfortable during certain procedures. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. It is not intended to put them to sleep but instead is designed to help them feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide are temporary and wear off soon after the mask is removed.
More complex treatments may require deeper sedation to relieve both pain and anxiety. On occasion, deep sedation through an IV may be used for a temporary loss of consciousness. Your child’s comfort and safety are especially important to us.
