Kids Can Relax When Going to the Dentist in Gun Barrel City, TX

Learn about nitrous oxide sedation in pediatric dentistry

Going to the dentist can be a terrifying experience for kids. To help kids relax during their procedures, the team at Children's Dental Depot uses nitrous oxide sedation in pediatric dentistry.

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is recognized by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as a safe and an effective technique for treating young patients. Here's how it works:

  • Your child will breathe through a small mask placed over their nose.
  • The nitrous oxide will help your child relax without putting them to sleep.
  • Normal breathing will get rid of the nitrous oxide in your child's body.
Nitrous oxide is not addictive. To learn more about why we use nitrous oxide sedation in pediatric dentistry, contact our Gun Barrel City, TX office today.
