At My Pediatric Dentist Montrose, we do our best to ensure every child has the best possible dentistry experience at our family dental clinic. However, we know that even the best circumstances can still lead to fear or anxiety. As much as we would love to wave a magic wand to get rid of your child’s cavities, this isn’t an option. Instead, we are happy to offer sedation dentistry to help our patients.
Sedation dentistry is a great way to help patients relax while undergoing their examination, cleaning, fillings, and more. Any child who is afraid of the dentist, has many procedures to undergo, or has certain behavioral and developmental conditions may be a good candidate. Allow us to lessen their stress and make everyone’s role a little easier to manage.
We offer the following types of sedation dentistry for our patients:
- Nitrous oxide — Laughing gas keeps your child awake but helps them relax and go about their day as normal after their procedure.
- Oral conscious sedation — We’ll offer your child some medicine mixed with juice to make them sleepy. If they fall asleep, they can be woken up easily afterward.
Choose the sedation method that makes the most sense for your child and their needs. Get in touch with our team today to set up a consultation to learn more.
