Sedation Dentistry

If you have a child who is particularly nervous or anxious about an upcoming dental experience, let’s talk about sedation dentistry. We always want to make your child’s appointment a success, whether they’re anxious about a single procedure or the entire encounter.

Our in-house pediatric dental team can sometimes recommend sedation dentistry for children with:

  • Multiple or long upcoming dental procedures
  • Anxiety about an upcoming dental visit
  • Difficulty sitting through an entire dental appointment
  • An overactive gag reflex

Laughing gas – our recommended choice for easy, safe dental sedation – offers a safe, 100% pain-free dental experience. Laughing gas can make your child feel relaxed, at ease, even giddy. And as soon as the mask is removed, the effects of the laughing gas will diminish and vanish.


    Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation dentistry, one that is easily controlled and adjusted based on your child’s needs. It has no side effects on the heart, liver, brain or kidneys, and is odor-free and colorless. Furthermore, laughing gas will not disturb normal breathing patterns of pediatric patients.

    Sedation is delivered through a mask over the nose, blended with oxygen and delivered as your child naturally inhales. Laughing gas takes effect almost immediately, so your child can begin feeling comfortable right away. Used effectively for more than 100 years, laughing gas represents a protective approach to sedation dentistry, one that can calm children without compromising their health in any way.

    At Go Kids Dental & Orthodontics, we know that all children who walk through our doors should receive quality dental care. They deserve a relaxing, safe experience, without any associated anxiety, and that’s exactly what we offer.
