Care for Dental Injuries
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is a very safe and effective way to reduce dental anxiety. The gas is an oxygen mixture that is inhaled through a mask that fits over the nose or mouth. Nitrous oxide will not put your child to sleep; instead it makes them feel extremely calm and comfortable. Your child will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Rod may have without any delay or problems.
