Children's Dental Care In York

inhalation sedation

Inhalation sedation is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety and discomfort during a dental procedure. Unlike other forms of sedation, inhalation sedation does not put your child to sleep, it allows them to remain conscious and they are able to communicate throughout.

Reducing dental stress in anxious children

It works swiftly and wears off quickly, allowing your child to return to their normal activities soon after their procedure. A small mask will be placed over your child’s nose for them to gently inhale the sedative, which produces a calming and relaxing effect that will relieve your child of anxieties.



  • It is a safe and suitable form of sedation for children.

  • A few children may feel sick or have a headache afterwards, but side effects are rare.

  • We will discuss all the benefits and side effects of inhalation sedation with you during the consultation.

  • From the age of 4 or 5.

“Dr Laura Mazecaite has gone above and beyond to help my daughter and to reassure her during our appointments. She gave my daughter her time, kindness and confidence to help reach the point where the idea of the treatment was acceptable – this is HUGE progress and I want to credit Laura for her patient, respectful and understanding care. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone in need of dental care. We are so grateful to have her as our dentist.”
