Even when you start your child’s dental visits at a young age, they can still grow to experience some anxiety or fear. This is not unusual or bad – everyone is just different. Kids Dental Specialists offer pediatric sedation to help with these negative feelings, providing a sense of ease and comfort for your child when they have their exam.
We offer several sedative options, including oral sedation, to ensure every child can reap the benefits of good oral health. With our safe, calming treatments, they can have their exams and dental work done without stress, anxiety, or fear – and that makes parents feel better, too.
Types of Sedatives
Most people think of pediatric dentistry all being the same, but we offer options to customize each patient’s experience. Positive dental habits and related exams and treatment are not a one-size-fits-all kind of protocol, especially for young brushers. We go out of our way to make them feel welcome and comfortable, and we try to make it fun for them to learn about the importance of healthy teeth.
For most kids, nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”, is a great option. It is safe to use and we mix it with oxygen to provide an extra layer of protection for your child. This combination promotes relaxation and deep breathing, keeping your child safe and at ease.
Oral and IV Sedatives
For children with conditions that don’t allow them to sit still, we offer a stronger sedative in three options: pill, liquid, or intravenous form. This type of sedation is recommended only for certain procedures.
