If your child has difficulty sitting still, experiences extreme anxiety or fear, or needs an extensive procedure, Dr. Anthony Scoma can provide laughing gas to help him or her relax and feel comfortable while visiting Seaside Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics Inc. Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, is a form of sedation dentistry that provides a calming effect without putting your child to sleep. This treatment is safe, and only rarely produces side effects. For more information on nitrous oxide in La Jolla, California, and to make your family’s appointment with our pediatric dentist, please call our office at 858-551-9700.
