Children’s Dental Sedation
NITROUS OXIDE (LAUGHING GAS)
Dr. Sara offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for anxious children. Nitrous oxide is an extremely safe and effective agent, which is used as a mild sedative. After the procedure is completed, there is total recovery with no side effects and children can return to school immediately after their appointment.
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Oral conscious sedation (Minimal Sedation) is a safe and effective technique used to relax and reduce anxiety during dental procedures. Children are drowsy but still conscious and responsive to verbal instruction. Minimal sedation is indicated for children who experience higher levels of anxiety. In addition, sedation is also recommended for children who are very young or who have special needs and are unable to cooperate for dental treatment.
We are proud to safely and effectively utilize sedation in our Smyrna Pediatric Dental Office.
