Sedation Dentistry

A specialized technique used in pediatric dentistry to help young patients feel calm and relaxed during dental procedures.

There are various forms of sedation that can be used depending on the age and needs of the child. For younger children or those with mild anxiety, nitrous oxide gas (also known as laughing gas) may be administered through a mask placed over the nose. This helps to reduce any discomfort or fear, allowing for a smoother dental experience.

Why Sedation?

Children are often scared or anxious about visiting the dentist, and this can make it difficult for them to sit still and cooperate during treatment. This is where sedation dentistry comes in. By creating a calm and stress-free environment, children are more likely to develop good oral hygiene habits and maintain regular visits to the dentist throughout their lives.

How Sedation Dentistry Works?

One of the main reasons why a pediatric dentist uses sedation in pediatric dentistry is to create a safe and comfortable environment for both the child and the dentist. Fearful or anxious children can become uncooperative during dental procedures, making it challenging for the dentist to perform necessary treatments effectively. Sedation helps alleviate this problem by inducing relaxation and reducing any discomfort or pain that the child may feel.
