    I'd definitely do it. It's not expensive. I think we were charged $30.

    We are charged $45 per nitrous use. The dentist did say that it made a big difference and I wanted DS to be comfortable.

    I am wondering why no practices we have ever gone to have offered this. Anyone else have dentists that don't use it or offer it? We have gone to a family dentist and a pediatric dentist.

    same with us. DD had to have one pulled at age 8 for same reason as OP. She is a BIG baby about pain and is also very anxious and it was not a problem or bad experience whatsoever. In terms of the anxiety, it was better for her to be with a dentist/office she knew well.

    I was at a practice in October that didn't use it. Until I needed work done I didn't realize they didn't have the gas because I've never been to a dentist that DIDN'T have it. To me it's a standard of care, and so we have left that practice for one that does offer it.
    I've heard they are going to start offering it for labor and delivery.... Already been in use for years in Europe. Sounds awesome to me!
