Addressing Anxiety, Ensuring Comfort
We understand that dental visits can be overwhelming for children. Our priority is to ensure a relaxed, anxiety-free experience for our young patients and their parents.
Tailored Sedation Options
At The Kids Dentist, we offer tailored sedation options to suit your child’s needs:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Laughing Gas):
Nitrous gas is a sedative used to help patients relax during their dental visit, allowing the doctor to effectively treat them. Nitrous gas is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide. Before the procedure, a fitted mask is placed over the patient’s nose. As they breathe, the blend is absorbed through the lungs. At the end of the treatment, the nitrous gas is removed and has no lingering effects. There are no side effects of laughing gas and recovery is quick. The use of nitrous gas is very safe, as it is rapidly absorbed, is reversible, and can be adjusted in concentration. The patient is fully conscious and keeps all of their natural reflexes while absorbing the nitrous gas.
Oral Conscious Sedation:
Another alternative for helping nervous patients relax at the dentist’s office is the use of sedation. This type of sedation tends to produce feelings of drowsiness and relaxation and is not meant to make the patient unconscious. Oral sedation may also be recommended as it makes it easier for the dentist to provide treatment, along with preventing accidents that may result from uncontrolled movements in an anxious, uncooperative patient.
Utilizing general anesthesia in sedation dentistry ensures a safe experience, particularly for children who exhibit uncooperative behavior or struggle to effectively communicate.
Sedation dentistry involving general anesthesia (GA) is reserved for patients whose behavior cannot be managed through nonpharmacological techniques (such as tell-show-do, positive reinforcement, voice control, distraction) or pharmacological methods (like nitrous oxide sedation, oral sedation). This is especially pertinent for patients with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, as they often have poorer oral hygiene and increased dental treatment needs compared to the general healthy population. GA emerges as the primary means to provide necessary dental treatment for these individuals within the realm of sedation dentistry.
Moreover, within the spectrum of sedation dentistry, candidates for GA include patients with complex medical conditions, very young children requiring invasive dental procedures, or individuals with advanced full mouth caries necessitating comprehensive dental treatment. Additionally, otherwise healthy patients exhibiting extreme dental phobia or severe uncooperativeness may also benefit from GA as a part of sedation dentistry.
