Many children feel anxious before and during dental procedures. We understand that our patients aren’t all the same, and we have great news: you and your child have options! Your child can experience dental treatment in a comfortable, customized approach with several different methods of sedation.
The most common forms of sedation used for kids dentistry are nitrous inhalation and oral sedation. While these adjunct options make dentistry much easier for your child, it is important to understand that they are not pain-killers, and regular numbing medications still prove essential. When used appropriately, sedation will make every part of your child’s treatment more enjoyable.
Laughing gas, an inhalation sedative, brings one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques to nearly any procedure. Patients from young to old may benefit from a dose obtained just by breathing in and out. With no lasting side effects, it’s a safe, simple solution to easing dental anxiety.
