Visiting the dentist can be a scary experience for some of our young guests. The last thing we want is for your children to feel uncomfortable, but we definitely don’t want them to miss an appointment. At Children & Teen Dental of Florida, we offer dental sedation with nitrous oxide. The use of nitrous oxide is a popular way of relaxing children and teens, as it is a secure and fast-acting option. With sedation, our guests feel relaxed while our team provides them with the dental treatments or services they need to stay healthy. Contact our Lakeland, FL office to schedule an appointment and learn how nitrous oxide can benefit your child.
Sedation With Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative administered using a breathable gas that is worn over your child’s nose. During the appointment, the dentist can adjust the gas supply as necessary. While your child is breathing in the gas, they will be in a happy, relaxed state, which will keep them awake and conscious during the visit. We will carefully monitor your child during the treatment to ensure they feel comfortable and safe while using nitrous oxide. The effects of the sedative begin working quickly and disappear soon after your child stops inhaling the gas. Nitrous oxide is a safe, easy way to assist anxious guests during their dental appointments.
Benefits of Nitrous Oxide
Utilizing nitrous oxide during your child’s visit could make the experience more pleasant for them. With nitrous oxide, guests experiencing dental anxiety could see that the appointment wasn’t as scary as they expected! During the appointment, they will be awake and conscious so they can speak to our team and respond to questions or instructions from the dentist. Nitrous oxide also offers convenience, as it is provided in the office, and there are no special steps or prescriptions needed for the administration of the treatment.
