Feeling anxious about your child’s upcoming dental visit is entirely normal, and you’re not alone in this journey. At Hawthorne Smile Spa, we understand the importance of creating a comfortable and stress-free experience for both you and your little one. 

If the thought of dental procedures makes your child uneasy, dental sedation might be the perfect solution. Let’s explore the options at our Hawthorne, CA pediatric dental office. And remember, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Laughing Gas

This gentle form of sedation is inhaled through a mask, helping your child to relax without falling asleep. It’s a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety during dental procedures, with the effects wearing off quickly once the mask is removed.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Administered in the form of a pill before the procedure, this type of sedation allows your child to remain awake but in a deeply relaxed state. It’s particularly beneficial for longer procedures or for children with higher levels of anxiety.

General Anesthesia

In cases where extensive dental work is needed, or if other forms of sedation are not suitable, general anesthesia can be used. This method allows your child to sleep through the procedure, ensuring they are completely comfortable and pain-free.

Your child’s comfort and safety are our top priorities at Hawthorne Smile Spa. Each child is unique, and we’re committed to finding the best sedation option to suit their needs. Let’s make their dental experience as positive and worry-free as possible.
