At Dentistry For Children, we utilize dental equipment that helps us to provide dental care for your child. One specific piece of equipment that we use is an automatic computer application of dental injections, which allows us to utilize dental injections to reduce discomfort and anxiety. We also work with scented nitrous oxide nose pieces from Accutron for comfortable sedation. We offer the following scented nasal masks: Groovy Grape, Sassy Strawberry, Birthday Bubble Gum, and Outlaw Orange. You can find more information by clicking here.

To make our patients more comfortable, our office now offers The Wand®. This great innovation is perfect for any patient with an injection phobia! For more information, please click here.
The 5 Advantages of Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide sedation is a very safe, economical and efficient treatment method. Nitrous oxide sedation is an extension of the services on offer at your practice.
Nitrous oxide sedation fills the gaps between local and general anaesthesia.
Nitrous oxide sedation is ideally suited for the treatment of patients with anxiety, children and patients with a low pain threshold.
The intensity of sedation can be very well controlled at all times through the percentage mixture of nitrous oxide. The dentist can determine the depth of sedation on an individual basis, as required.
Nitrous oxide sedation remains the only analgesic that can be quickly reversed to bring the patient to full consciousness (through the administration of 100% oxygen).
For those children who require extensive dental work, who are extremely uncooperative, fearful and anxious, general anaesthesia presents an option to have treatment done in one sitting.
General anaesthesia may also be appropriate for children who require significant surgical procedures or children with special needs.
The anaesthesia procedure is performed by Dr. Jonathon Lok, a licensed dental anaesthetist.
