Nitrous Oxide Instructions for your child

 Lets You Stay in Control

What is Nitrous Oxide? Nitrous Oxide (“Laughing Gas”) is a colorless, slightly sweet-smelling gas that is blended with oxygen and administered through a nasal mask. For instance, it helps patients relax during their dental treatment. In addition, it may produce a feeling of giddiness. Similarly, sometimes children report dreaming and their arms and legs may feel tingly. Additionally, these nitrous oxide instructions will help you understand what your child will go through.
Is Nitrous Oxide Safe?
Yes, Nitrous oxide is one of the safest and most effective methods for slightly anxious patients. Nitrous oxide is not addictive and your child will remain awake but relaxed during the treatment. Its safety has been well-established, and the sedation effect wears off quickly (within 5 minutes) so there is no extended recovery time. It can be used for both children and adults.
We have Nitrous masks in different scents like Bubblegum, orangesicle, and Vanilla.

Prior to a Nitrous appointment:

  • Give your child little or no food in the two hours preceding the dental visit (occasionally, nausea or vomiting occurs when a child has a full stomach).
  • Tell your pediatric dentist about any respiratory condition that makes breathing through the nose difficult for your child, as it may limit the effectiveness of nitrous oxide/oxygen.
  • Tell your dentist if your child is taking any medication on the day of the appointment.
  • Tell your dentist if you are pregnant on the day of the appointment.

There are no prolonged side effects when using Nitrous Oxide and normal activity can be resumed post-dental procedure.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?

Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more

The effects of fruit on kids teeth

We all know that fruit is full of vitamins and an important part of kids diets. But did you know that too much fruit (whether it’s fresh fruit, fruit juices, dried fruit or canned fruit) can have a negative effect and contribute to problems such as cavities and erosion, especially if your kids are grazing on fruit all day?

Are sports drinks okay for kids?

Statistics continue to show an alarming increase in the consumption of sports and energy drinks, especially among kids. Along with having the potential to cause various health problems, these beverages can cause irreversible damage to teeth. And sugar is only part of the reason — high acidity levels in these drinks erode enamel, the outer layer of teeth. Read more

My two little ones love going to Sheer Smiles!

My two little ones love going to Sheer Smiles! The office is always nice and clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is never a long wait to be seen, so anxious and impatient little ones aren’t kept waiting. There are even TVs on the ceilings in the patient area with entertainment to distract them while being seen.
