DENTISTRY BOOK: Nitrous Oxide in Pediatric Dentistry: A Clinical Handbook - 2020


This clinical handbook is a complete guide to the use of nitrous oxide when performing dental procedures in children.


Nitrous oxide offers the easiest and safest form of pharmacological behavior management in this age group and can help greatly in reducing fear and anxiety toward dentists and dental treatment. 

Importantly, its use in children differs from that in adults, owing in part to the need for appropriate behavior management skills. In considering a range of clinical scenarios in which nitrous oxide is of value, this book will support clinicians in their daily practice.


All aspects are covered, including rationale, basic science, mechanism of action, equipment, scavenging systems, technique, monitoring, safety, toxicity, documentation, and team building. 

uidance is also provided on the use of nitrous oxide in special pediatric populations requiring oral health care. 

The book is supplemented by videos that will help readers to comprehend the text easily and to perform the technique efficiently and effectively.
