Entenox in dentistry

Is it safe for dentists to use Entenox or happy gas on children during dental procedures? What are the pro's and cons?

Expert's Reply

Paediatrician

Entenox (Nitrous oxide) is a safe and often used painrelieving agent. It needs to be used under close and proper supervision, but if used in the correct way and with adequate safety measures in place it may be of value in dental surgery.
