Our goal at myKIDSdds is to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible. We understand that many children have a great deal of fear and anxiety associated with going to the dentist, and while we do our best to make them feel at-home and comfortable in their visits, we are also happy to offer sedative options to those children who are particularly sensitive, anxious, or need a large amount of work.
Also known as “laughing gas,” this is administered by breathing it in through a mask. The gas helps the child relax during the procedure so children are more cooperative and at ease.
We also offer an oral sedative option taken as a liquid medication, to make the child drowsy and relaxed during the procedure.
When necessary our office also offers IV sedation, which begins working more quickly than the other options and results in a more moderate level of sedation.
