Pediatric Sedation DentistrySan Francisco, CA


Little boy ready for sedation dentistryAt Orthodontics Pediatric Dentistry - OPDSF, we understand that some children have had traumatic experiences in dentistry or have other anxieties about their treatment. Your San Francisco dentist strives to make your child comfortable and to meet their individual needs. For children with anxiety, sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide may be the answer.

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that will help your child relax. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your child's nose.

Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option our doctors may offer to help make your child more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put them to sleep. Your child will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions your or our doctors may have. Our doctors will ask your child to breathe normally through their nose, and within a few short minutes, they should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. Your child may feel light-headed or a tingling in their arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, your child should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for your child at their next appointment.
