Children's Sedation Dentistry & Nitrous Oxide in Austin, TX

At Lone Star Pediatric Dental & Braces, with 11 locations throughout the Austin, TX area, we prioritize your comfort and safety during every visit. We understand that dental procedures can cause anxiety or worry for patients of all ages, which is why we offer nitrous oxide and other sedation options to ensure a relaxed, stress-free experience. 


Nitrous Oxide Sedation for Children

Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is inhaled through a small mask over the nose. It helps patients feel more calm and comfortable during dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is a popular choice for both children and adults due to its gentle and quick-acting effects.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide for Children:

  • Ease of Use: The sedation level can be easily adjusted throughout the procedure to ensure maximum comfort.
  • Quick Recovery: Effects wear off quickly after the mask is removed, allowing patients to resume their normal activities with no downtime.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Nitrous oxide is well-tolerated, with minimal risk of side effects. 

Additional Sedation Options for Children

Recognizing that every patient is unique, we also offer a variety of sedation methods to meet individual needs and preferences. These include:

  • Oral Conscious Sedation: This option involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before the procedure, creating a moderate level of sedation that is suitable for patients with mild to moderate anxiety.
  • IV Sedation: IV sedation offers a deeper level of sedation, ideal for more extensive procedures or patients with significant dental anxiety. This option is conducted under the supervision of a trained professional.
