Nitrous Oxide Sedation
When your child has mild anxiety or nervousness, a small amount of sedation may be all they need to stay calm and at ease during their visit. This sedative comes in the form of a gas that is inhaled throughout the course of treatment. When you arrive, your child will be given a nasal mask to wear, then asked to breathe normally before treatment begins. Since the gas is more mild, your child can continue regular activities once the mask is removed. The effects of the sedation only take a few minutes to wear off.
Also known as sleep dentistry, general anesthesiology is the strongest form of sedation you can receive at our office. In fact, it’s often used in hospitals to put patients into a deep state of sleep. This makes it ideal for those with large amounts of care to complete or special needs. To administer sleep dentistry, our in-office anesthesiologist can manage and regulate their sedation, ensuring the best comfort and safest treatment possible. Following their care, they will need to wait several hours for the sedative’s effects to wear off.
