Whether your child becomes nervous at just the thought of visiting the dentist or they have a restorative procedure coming up, we offer relaxing dental sedation that can cater to their needs. These safe and effective sedation options can make a world of difference when it comes to helping your child remain calm and still for the duration of their treatment. Our sedation options include:
- Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a clear gas that is administered through a nose mask to help relieve dental anxiety. Patients may feel calm and lightheaded, or they may experience a feeling of giddiness, like everything around them is funny. The effects of nitrous oxide begin almost right away and subside within a few minutes of removing the mask.
- Oral Sedation requires the patient to take an oral medication that will put them in a sleepy, dream-like state. Some patients fall asleep during their treatment with this form of sedation, but they are not rendered unconscious as with general anesthesia. We always take each child’s medical history and treatment plan into consideration when prescribing medication.
- General Anesthesia is a controlled state of unconsciousness that allows our team to perform more advanced procedures while the patient is immobile and unaware of what is happening. This form of dental sedation is reserved for special situations and it is done on an outpatient basis at a nearby hospital.
