Laughing gas is safe, healthy, and conscious sedation that provides a relaxing experience for your child while still allowing us to communicate with them. Following treatment, the effects will quickly wear off, allowing your child to resume normal activities.
Oral sedation is administered through oral medications and provides light conscious sedation. During treatment, your child’s vital signs closely monitored, as safety is always a top priority. Following treatment, your child may feel dizzy and tired, and we recommend supervision.
IV sedation is administered intravenously and provides deep conscious sedation. An anesthesiologist will be present during treatment to closely monitor your child. Following treatment, we don’t advise regular activity and prefer for the parent to keep a close eye on the child.
In certain situations, general anesthesia may be required for your child’s treatment. I will be to do at a local hospital as outpatient surgery; your child will be able to return home the same day.
Sedation dentistry can be an excellent tool for providing professional dental treatments to a child who has anxiety when it comes to the dentist. Before and after treatment, you will give explicit instructions.
