Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide) in Upper West SideAt Tree House Pediatric Dentistry we want your child’s visit to be a positive and comfortable experience!

Nitrous Oxide decreases fear, anxiety and apprehension, lowers the sensation of discomfort, and inhibits the gag reflex while enabling children to remain happy, cooperative, and relaxed for their dental visit. Your child stays fully awake throughout the appointment, engaging and interacting (and often giggling) with the doctor, staff, and family! Laughing gas is extremely safe, being the least potent of all anesthetic gases in use today, and your child will leave the office feeling the same way as when they arrived. We ask that you avoid heavy meals before appointments with laughing gas in order to prevent rare cases of nausea.
