Sedation Dentistry for kids

The gentle way to dental care 😀

Dental sedation is the safest and easiest technique to reduce a child’s anxiety and discomfort during dental visits. With conscious sedation, children may become less active or drowsy and gets back to normal state as soon as the delivery of sedative mixture of gases is discontinued.

Sedation may be used in children who are very young to cooperate long enough for the pediatric dentist to perform procedures safely. Sedation helps them to relax, cope and feel happier about the treatment and manage anxiety during and after the procedure. It is also an ideal option for children with special needs,as well as adults with dental phobias.

Types of

Sedation in Dentistry

Nitrous oxide

It is a mild sedative, commonly called as laughing gas that is administered to children through the nose. The mixture of gases- oxygen and nitrous oxide is delivered that keeps your child more relaxed and cooperative to the treatment. The mixture of gases will not put your child to sleep.

Moderate sedation

This is usually preferred choice of sedation for older children and young adults as compared to younger children. With moderate sedation children are sleepier, but are awake enough to responds to the pediatric dentist’s commands. They may not remember anything about the dental visit.

General anesthesia

With general anesthesia, children will be completely asleep and pain free during the entire curse of treatment session. The treatment is generally done in a hospital set up in the presence of an anesthesiologist who administers the sedative and monitors them until the treatment is completed.

Deep sedation

For children with extensive and multiple procedures, we suggest to opt for deep sedation, where they are made to sleep with intravenous (IV) medication. The procedure is generally performed with an anesthesiologist monitoring their vital signs during the procedure.

Mild sedation

This is a combination of medicines commonly used for older children and adults.The patient would be calm, awake and responds to the pediatric dentist’s commands.
