Pediatric Sedation Dentistry

Visiting the dentist can be scary for children, but it doesn’t have to be. Pediatric dentists like Children’s Dentistry in Las Vegas specialize in keeping children comfortable and making their treatments as pain-free as possible.

Gentle sedation is a great way to keep children relaxed for easy dentist trips. Sedation methods like general anesthesia are great for children with severe anxiety or conditions like Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy.

If you live in the Las Vegas area, schedule your child’s next appointment with Children’s Dentistry, a sedation dentist for children.

Meeting Your Child’s Unique Needs

Dental treatment for children

Every child is different, so Children’s Dentistry provides a range of safe sedation and anesthesia strategies tailored to the unique needs of each patient and the type of procedure being performed.

The mildest form of sedation is nitrous oxide, a type of gas used for relaxation and pain relief. Children treated with nitrous oxide will still be awake may even feel a little giddy and silly afterward.

Types of Dental Sedation

As a child sedation dentist, we offer nitrous oxide among other forms of sedation that help your child relax and make their appointment easier.

  • Mild sedation is delivered according to each child’s needs. It’s great for kids who get a little nervous at the dentist or who have trouble sitting still in the dentist’s chair. While relaxed, your child will still be awake with mild sedation.
  • Moderate sedation induces drowsiness but not sleep. Your child is typically able to communicate, but may not remember their treatment.
  • General anesthesia is a form of deep sedation that will put your child entirely to sleep. These treatments are attended by an anesthesiologist. Your child won’t feel or remember anything about their treatment.
