Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a safe and frequently-used conscious sedative that Dr. Ed Perdue may recommend if your child suffers from dental fear or anxiety. Laughing gas is a clear, odorless gas that our pediatric dentist and team will safely administer to your child. While breathing in the gas, your child will feel relaxed and calm, but they will remain awake. This allows us to work on your child’s teeth with minimal discomfort. Once the flow of laughing gas stops, the effects will wear off in just a few minutes. To learn more about whether your child can benefit from nitrous oxide in Nashville, Tennessee, we welcome you to call us today at 615-662-2191.
