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.
