Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide Sedation in dentistry is the safest option available!

Pain and anxiety management is of paramount importance in dentistry. As many as 10 to 30% of adults and children may have some form of fear or anxiety related to dental treatment. There is substantial evidence that these patients will benefit from sedation with nitrous oxide (N2O) and that this form of sedation is extremely safe and efficient. Dr. David show is a trained and experienced dental practitioner in Nitrous Oxide Sedation.

At Chow Dental Group, we use nitrous oxide sedation, in addition to our patient-centered, behaviour management techniques to effectively help children and adults feel comfortable with their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is the “standard technique” in pediatric dentistry and is successful in up to 90% of cases provided the patients are carefully selected.
