Nitrious Oxide (laughing gas)

Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that is being used for control of anxiety or uncomfortable procedures at  It is commonly known as laughing gas or happy gas. Nitrous oxide works immediately once it has been inhaled. The effects of nitrous oxide last for only one to two minutes after the mask has been removed.

Oral Conscious Sedation

 Oral sedation is generally used for a child undergoing a dental procedures and who will experience minimal to moderate sedation while still being conscious and maintaining cardiorespiratory function. Patients will be given an oral medication that is easy to swallow and safe. The precise dose will be determined by their unique weight, situation, and circumstances. During the procedure, each patient is monitored closely by both pulse dosimeter and a blood pressure cuff. After completion of the procedure, the patient is monitored until he or she reaches specific discharge criteria, after which the child is  able to go home.
