Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called ?laughing gas,? is one option we offer to help make your child more comfortable during their dental procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
Conscious Oral Sedation
When a child is young and has many cavities, it is very difficult for your child to stay still during the dental treatment. To make sure the procedure is done in a safe manner, we offer oral sedation to make the appointment easier for your child. It is a liquid medication that is safe for children. Your child stays awake during the appointment and is very relaxed and drowsy.
This is what most people call ?being put to sleep?. We offer general anesthesia for those who are very young, very fearful and unable to cope with multiple dental appointments. General anesthesia is provided in a surgical centre by an anesthesiologist who specializes in treating children.
We focus on making your littles ones feel like a big deal!
We work closely with your family philosophy to give your child the unique and specialized care that they deserve.
Our goals are to work together with you to:
PLAN: Create an individualized plan together with you to address your child’s specific treatment needs
TREAT: Work with you to complete treatment in a way that works with your family philosophy
PREVENT: Help you and your child maintain healthy, cavity free dental visits in the future
We have a team approach to treating all of our young patients. Our referring dentists, hygienists, parents and patients are all part of The Smile Team!
