Before your child's appointment, our Board-Certified pediatric dentist will prescribe medication to take at home, and by the time we're ready to start our visit, they'll feel completely at ease and able to sit comfortably in the treatment chair. Although they'll stay awake throughout the procedure, they will be in a dream-like state and likely not remember details from the appointment. What they (and you) will remember is a relaxing and hassle-free dental experience!
Sometimes, patients just need to take the edge off their dental anxiety. Nitrous oxide sedation is ideal for adults and children who are undergoing routine dental care. Administered through a small nasal mask, this form of sedation causes a patient to feel content, warm, and slightly numb all over within just minutes. Then, when the procedure is over, the mask is removed, and the effects wear off almost instantly, allowing a patient to get straight back to their regular day.
