Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation (“Laughing Gas”)
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide sedation is helpful for routine procedures and for patients who experience mild dental anxiety. When the patient sits in the treatment chair, we place a nasal mask on them, and they breathe in the gentle mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Within minutes, they feel more calm and content. Throughout their visit, we can make adjustments as needed, ensuring total comfort for the entire process. This method of sedation is mild enough that when turned off at the end of the procedure, most patients feel back to normal.
Oral Conscious Dental Sedation (“Sleepy Juice”)
For children who have moderate dental anxiety and/or have a need for multiple dental procedures, oral conscious sedation is a good option. This is a liquid medicine that the child will take in our dental office that will help him/her go into a dreamlike state, without remembering the details of the appointment. Keep in mind that the effects of oral conscious sedation can take hours to wear off, so they will need to be supervised before and after the visit to our dental office.
In-Office General Anesthesia
For children with severe anxiety and/ or medical necessities that require deeper sedation, we may recommend the use of general anesthesia to put them to sleep for their dental treatment . We perform this in-office with a licensed anesthesiologist to ensure your child’s safety during the whole procedure.
