Children’s Dental Center Uses IV Sedation
Is your little one terrified of going to the dentist? They’re not alone. Many dental procedures and patients require the use of sedation (or sleep) dentistry to help make the experience a more comfortable one. Children’s Dental Center uses IV sedation, as well as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), for certain procedures and patients. Maintaining their safety during a dental procedure is one of our top priorities. We’re here to help reduce their stress (and yours) before, during, and after a procedure.
Understanding the Types of Sedation Dentistry We Offer
Children’s Dental Center is experienced at providing many types of sedation dentistry for patients in our Georgia offices. Because we believe in educating the parents of our pediatric patients about their options.
Here’s a brief explanation of our available sedation dentistry techniques:
IV sedation involves allowing a sedative to enter your child’s veins through an IV to put them to sleep during a procedure. IV sedation is always carefully monitored by an anesthesiologist and may be adjusted accordingly throughout the treatment.
Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) involves a sedative mixed with oxygen that’s inhaled through the nose using a special mask. It’s a safe, effective method of conscious sedation for children and adults that usually works within five minutes.
