Most children are calm, comfortable and confident in a pediatric dental office. The office is designed for young people, and pediatric dentist have additional training in caring for infants, children, and adolescents. Staff members choose to work in a pediatric dental office because they like children and want to caster to their special needs. These elements combine to make your child feel relaxed and special.
Sometimes, however, a child may feel anxious before or during treatment. Your child may need more support than a gentle, caring manner to feel comfortable. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a safe, effective sedative agent used to calm a child’s fear of the dental visit and enhance effective communication. Additionally, it works well for children whose gag reflex interferes with dental treatment.
