Hello, This practice involves anesthetizing child so that there is full cooperation and ease of doing a dental job. If your pediatrician deems him to be fit for this, please go ahead and get it done. Then there no or very little likelihood of any problem during the procedure and he should be fine, feeling some pain for a day or two after he comes out of anesthesia, needing pain killer drug.

You are welcome. Gas inhalation drug is different from mouth injection given for local anesthesia in tooth root. So there is no cross reaction possible.There would be no or very little risk involved.
