Nitrous Oxide – Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas, is used to help some children to relax before and during their dental treatment. Nitrous Oxide and oxygen are administered through a small breathing mask placed over your child’s nose, causing him or her to be relaxed, but awake and able to follow commands. This gas is very mild, wears off quite quickly, and is safe for your child to breathe.
Please make sure your child is dressed in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.
At FMS we have our own in house operation theatre and experienced Doctors who perform treatments under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is used when all other methods have not been successful. This form of sedation will allow your child to sleep throughout his or her entire appointment while completing all of their treatment. This is the same form of sedation that would be used if your child was having tonsils removed or ear tubes placed. we understand that this type of procedure can be very emotional and stressful. Instead of having to go to an outpatient surgery center, we have the best anesthesiologist on staff to provide the same anesthesia services right in our centre. This way, you and your child can be comfortable in a familiar setting, while being assured to receive the best and safest care. Anesthesiologist will monitor your child’s vitals closely throughout the entire procedure making sure everything is going safely. The benefits of providing general anesthesia services outweigh the risks, especially when it comes to not allowing dental decay to become more severe and making sure your child has a positive dental experience.
