Dr. Pang, Dr. Chen, and Dr. Mo provide nitrous oxide to help children feel more relaxed in our office and more comfortable during their treatments. Nitrous oxide is very safe for children, and we will monitor your child throughout their entire appointment to ensure that they remain comfortable and that there are no complications. Call OPDSF Pediatric Dentistry at (415) 661-8383 to learn more about how your child can benefit from nitrous oxide in San Francisco, California, and to make an appointment with our pediatric dentists.
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N20) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our pediatric dentists and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment
