How We Help Kids With Dental Phobia

Dental phobia is common in both children and adults. A child who has dental phobia may avoid the dentist as a result. The good news is that there are many sedation options that can reduce dental anxiety in kids.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is often referred to as laughing gas. It can be used alone or with a sedation pill. It is designed to help take the edge off and help one relax. A local pediatric dentist may recommend this form of sedation because the effects wear off as soon as one turns off of the gas.

Oral Sedation

Our sedation dentist for kids can give your child a pill that will help them relax. It is common for a child to fall asleep after they are given an oral sedative.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is often recommended for people who have severe anxiety. The drugs are administered intravenously. People often fall asleep during the procedure. Not only can it reduce dental anxiety in kids, but your child will not remember any of the details of the procedure. The memories of the procedure can be just as scary as the procedure itself.
