Why Do We Fill Baby Teeth?
Treatment can be challenging for the child, the parent and the dentist. Any treatment takes time and parents should not expect that a child will be able to sit in the dental chair for a long time tolerating treatment like adults might.
Nitrous oxide (happy gas)
Happy gas is an anaesthetic gas that reduces pain and anxiety and works especially well on children who are anxious but still cooperative.
Some children will require their treatment to be completed when they are totally asleep, similar to many medical procedures. This may be due to their young age, the type of treatment that is required or the amount of work to be done. This is performed in a hospital setting with specialist paediatric anaesthetists.
