Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can be benefical and sometimes necessary for the following types of children:

  • Have a fear or anxiety of the dentist
  • Have a hard time sitting still for long periods of time
  • Have oversensitivity or sensory processing challenges
  • Have extensive dental needs
  • Have urgent dental needs that could result in a health emergency

Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • No memory of undergoing the procedure = preserves mental psyche
  • No fear or anxiety during treatment = builds trust with the dentists
  • No movement during the procedure = increased safety
  • Improved oral health in one visit = fewer dental visits

Levels of Sedation

We offer two types of sedation:

  • Nitrous Oxide Inhalation, or laughing gas, is the most frequently used method for easing mild to moderate anxiety. Recovery is quick so your child can resume normal activities immediately.
  • General Anesthesia is a form of deep sedation. Patients receiving deep sedation will have a secure breathing tube and will not have any memory of the procedure. This can be perforned in our office by Complete Care Anesthesia or in a hospital setting.
