Learn More from Our Children’s Sedation Dentist
The concerns, comfort, and needs of children remain the first priorities of our dental practice. Our children's sedation dentist recognizes that no two patients are alike. What may be a wise choice for one kid may not prove to be the best option for another. Our team goes above and beyond to determine the type of sedation that is both safe and effective for every child. The following are the leading forms of sedation utilized on a daily basis by our team:
- Mild Sedation—Anxiolysis, Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Sedation is the lightest type of sedation used in dentistry. It is perfect for patients suffering from mild anxiety, as well as more complex situations. While your child will remain awake during their treatment, they experience a great sense of relaxation while feeling extremely sleepy.
- General Anesthesia—Anesthesia keeps patients asleep for the duration of the procedure. We keep a dental anesthesiologist on staff who is trained in safely administering this sedation to young patients.
