This Weeks Oral Health Message to you from Dr. Max:

Hi this is Dr. Max,

Today I’d like to talk to you about a very safe and effective sedative called Nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas). It’s mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your child’s nose to help them relax and feel more comfortable during certain dental procedures. It is not intended to put them to sleep. They will be able to hear and respond to any requests or instructions the dentist may have. Your child would simply breathe normally through their nose, and within a few short minutes they should start to feel very calm and even “happy.”  The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. So if your child tends to be a little uneasy about having dental treatment, ask your dentist if nitrous oxide would be a good option. 

Thank you for visiting our site.  I hope to see you in the office soon!"
