Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Christiansburg, Blacksburg and Radford, VA

At Opulent Dental, often you will come across little kids crying and screaming on the dental chairs, because they are too scared to get the treatment done. We do not blame them.

Sedation for kids; safe or not?

Even after the application of fluorides and sealants and all the protective measures, the teeth can still fall prey to dental problems over time. It is crucial to get them treated. However, it is never easy to convince a child to let the dentist perform their jobs. The mere sight of a needle or the mask-covered faces of the dentists can scare them off.

This is why for extensive and somewhat painful dental procedures; Dr. Dutt at Opulent Dental suggests the use of nitrous oxide sedation- laughing gas, as you know it. It is the safest mode of sedation even for kids, and the best part is it helps the children calm down and relax, so the dental treatment is completed without any fuss.
