Questions about sedation for children

What type of sedation is right for my child?

The type of sedation we use will depend on the treatment your child needs, their level of anxiety, and overall health. Our team will discuss these factors with you and recommend the best option for your child.

Are there any side effects of sedation?

Side effects are generally mild and short-lived. One of our dentists will provide you with all the information and post-care instructions you need to ensure your child is comfortable and safe.

Is sedation safe for my child?

Safety is our top priority! All our sedation options are administered by trained professionals, and we follow strict protocols to ensure your child’s well-being.

Sedation options for your child

Each of our options is administered by trained professionals, ensuring an anxiety-free experience for you and your child.

  • Nitrous oxide: This gas is administered through a small mask placed over the nose. It wears off quickly after the treatment, allowing your child to return to their daily activities soon after the procedure.
  • IV Sedation: Intravenous sedation involves administering a sedative drug through a vein. This method allows us to provide a deeper level of relaxation for more extensive treatments.
  • Local anesthesia: Numbs a specific area of the mouth during a procedure, allowing your child to stay awake and comfortable.
