Nitrous Oxide

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, our team is experienced in providing gentle, caring pediatric dental care for our young patients. However, there are some children that may still be uneasy about having a dental procedure performed. Nitrous oxide, also referred to as “laughing gas”, is a safe option to relax your child to help them feel at ease during the office visit. It can make the dental procedure less stressful for them by relaxing their mind and body while our team does their job maintaining their dental health.

Ease Fear and Relax at the Dentist

Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that is breathed in through the nose through a small nasal mask. The gas is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that calms patients without putting them to sleep. With nitrous oxide, patients are fully aware of what is going on and can respond to and ask questions. Most patients feel a warm sense of well-being and relaxation while breathing in the gas, which helps ease their fear during the dental procedure. Once the dental visit is over, a few breaths of normal air removes the nitrous oxide from the body and the effects immediately dissipate.

For many dental patients young and old, nitrous oxide can reduce any tension or stress they may feel when at the dentist. It can help them relax so that the procedure can be finished quickly and accurately without interruption. If you or your child need dental care, yet have anxiety about the visiting the dentist, nitrous oxide is an option to make the experience more enjoyable.

Nitrous oxide is one of the many safe options and techniques we use at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry to ensure all our patients have a positive dental visit.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
