Nitrous Oxide Sedation: A Safe and Effective Way to Reduce Anxiety at True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ

Nitrous oxide sedation in Bloomfield, NJ

At True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ, we understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for children. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation as an option for our patients. Nitrous oxide sedation is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety during dental procedures, allowing us to provide the best possible care in a comfortable environment.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide sedation is also known as “laughing gas” because it has a calming effect on patients that helps them relax during procedures. It is administered through a mask that fits over the nose, allowing the patient to breathe in the gas while they are seated in the dentist’s chair. The effects take place quickly, within minutes after inhalation, but the effects  wear off just as quickly, once treatment is finished and oxygen levels return back to normal.

Benefits Of Using Nitrous Oxide For Children's Dentistry

Using nitrous oxide at True Pediatric Dental Care offers many benefits for both parents and children alike:

  • It helps relieve anxiety so that your child can relax throughout their appointment without feeling overwhelmed by fear or stress;

  • It reduces gag reflexes which makes it easier for us to perform certain treatments;

  • Its effects wear off quickly after treatment so there are no lingering side effects;

  • We can adjust the dosage depending on how anxious your child feels before each procedure;

  • It reduces pain perception so that treatments are more comfortable;

  • It helps keep children relaxed throughout their visit;

  • It allows us to complete treatments in a shorter period of time • And most importantly – it allows us to provide quality care while keeping our patients comfortable!

How Does The Process Work?

Before starting any procedure involving nitrous oxide sedation at True Pediatric Dental Care, we will discuss all aspects with you including any potential risks associated with its use (which are very rare). Once you have given consent, we will place a small mask over your child’s nose which delivers just enough oxygen mixed with nitrous oxide until they reach desired levels of relaxation (usually within minutes). During this time they may feel lightheadedness or tingling sensations but these should pass quickly once treatment begins. Afterward, they will remain conscious but relaxed throughout their appointment until all necessary work has been completed.  Afterward, 100% oxygen is administered and the effects wear off completely. 

At True Pediatric Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ, we strive every day toward providing excellent patient care while making sure everyone feels safe and secure throughout each visit- especially those who may feel anxious about going under anesthesia! With this goal in mind, using nitrous oxide sedation has proven itself time and again as one reliable method among many others available here at our office; helping make sure everyone gets through each session comfortably and successfully!
