Benefits of Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) for Children's Dentistry

At Solanki Dental Center in Sharjah, we understand that a trip to the dentist can be a source of anxiety for young children. That's why we offer nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, to create a positive and comfortable dental experience for your child.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a safe and gentle gas mixed with oxygen that your child breathes through a small mask during their dental procedure. It induces a feeling of relaxation and amusement, reducing anxiety and discomfort. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly after the procedure, allowing your child to recover rapidly.

Why Choose Nitrous Oxide for Your Child's Dentistry in Sharjah?

Nitrous oxide offers numerous benefits for children undergoing dental treatments:

  •      • Reduced Anxiety and Fear: Nitrous oxide helps your child feel calmer and less apprehensive, creating a more positive experience at the dentist.
  •      • Increased Cooperation: A relaxed child is more likely to cooperate with the dentist, allowing for a smoother and more efficient procedure.
  •      • Minimized Discomfort: While not a pain reliever, nitrous oxide can help your child feel less discomfort during treatment.
  •      • Safe and Effective: Nitrous oxide has a long history of safe and effective use in pediatric dentistry. Our experienced dentists will monitor your child closely throughout the procedure to ensure their safety and comfort.

Nitrous oxide risk factors:

While generally safe, nitrous oxide sedation can lead to nausea, vomiting, and rarely, allergic reactions or breathing issues. Discussing potential risks with the dentist beforehand is crucial.

Steps in Nitrous Oxide Procedure


Preparing children involves explaining the procedure, providing a light meal, practicing relaxation techniques, and considering nitrous oxide if they're anxious. Being present during the procedure offers comfort, and afterward, praising their bravery is beneficial.

The Sedation Experience

Nitrous oxide, administered through a mask, quickly takes effect, reducing anxiety and making procedures more tolerable.

After Sedation

After the procedure, the dentist switches to pure oxygen to wear off the gas's effects. The child rests under observation before being discharged.

Is Nitrous Oxide Right for My Child?

Nitrous oxide is a great option for many children in Sharjah, but it's not suitable for everyone. Our dentists will discuss your child's unique needs and medical history to determine if nitrous oxide is the best sedation method for their treatment.

We encourage you to discuss any questions you may have about nitrous oxide sedation with our friendly and experienced team at your child's next appointment.
