Why Choose All About Kids Dentistry for Sedation Dentistry?
- Fast-Acting Nitrous Oxide Available
- Convenient Oral Sedatives for Comfort
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
A fast-acting solution for easing dental fear and anxiety, nitrous oxide is the most commonly provided form of sedation available to dental offices. Through a nasal mask, this gas is gently inhaled by your child during their treatment, creating a warm and calming sensation from the moment their treatment begins. It’s generally ideal for those who want to take the edge off their dental discomfort or if they have mild anxiety prior to their checkup. Once removed, they should be able to continue their day without interruption.
Oral Pediatric Dental Sedation
If you’re looking for a sort of “goldilocks” option for sedation, oral pediatric dental sedation (also known as oral conscious sedation) is a great option for those with moderate to severe levels of anxiety or for those undergoing complex procedures. Usually taken as a liquid, this sedative puts your child into a deep state of relaxation that lasts their entire treatment. Upon completion of their care, we request that you allow time for the sedative to completely wear off.
