Dental Sedation For Kids

Overview

Introducing Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry – At our practice, we recognize that each child’s response to dental visits varies. Our mission revolves around alleviating this anxiety and ensuring your child’s ease during their time at our dental center. Our array of sedation choices is tailored to cater to individual needs, as the effects can differ from child to child. Our devoted team will engage in a thorough conversation to suggest the most suitable sedation method according to your child’s requirements. Our foremost objective remains delivering secure and comfortable care to your child. Although not all children necessitate sedation, it can be a beneficial alternative for eligible candidates. With comprehensive training, capabilities, and advanced equipment, we offer a comprehensive range of sedation options including laughing gas, oral sedation, and sleep dentistry. The ideal option for your child will be thoughtfully determined through a consultation session.

Is Sedation Safe for Children?

Certainly! Absolutely, when it comes to Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, the likelihood of any significant mishap occurring is exceedingly minimal—far less than the possibility of being struck by lightning. Individuals in good health who undergo sedation dentistry at our dental practice appear to face no greater risk compared to those undergoing treatment at a hospital. For the slight fraction of patients who might have a heightened susceptibility to potential complications, we will engage in conversations about alternative avenues. Ensuring the safety of our patients remains our highest and most paramount concern!

Laughing Gas Sedation

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we utilize the popular sedation method known as laughing gas, which is frequently employed in dentistry. When your child visits us, they will wear a mask that delivers the gas, ensuring they stay awake during the procedure. Once the gas is turned off, your child’s recovery is swift, taking only a few minutes. The remarkable aspect is that your child can promptly return to their regular activities immediately after concluding their appointment with us.

Oral Sedation

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we offer oral sedation as an enhanced alternative to laughing gas, providing a slightly stronger level of relaxation. If we determine that laughing gas might not fully alleviate your child’s anxiety, oral sedation could be a beneficial option. Administered as a drink, the sedative is taken 10-15 minutes before your child’s appointment. In certain cases, we may combine laughing gas with the oral sedative for optimal comfort. Throughout the procedure, your child will remain conscious and at ease, though a brief recovery period will be necessary. Consequently, we recommend avoiding immediate post-procedure activities that involve an oral sedative to ensure the most effective and comfortable experience for your child.

Sleep Dentistry

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we understand that some children may need multiple treatments or might not feel comfortable during awake procedures. This is where sleep dentistry emerges as an excellent choice. Our practice is well-prepared to offer safe sleep dentistry right here in our facility. Nonetheless, based on your child’s specific needs, we might decide to collaborate with a specialized colleague to ensure the best care possible.
