Our Dental Sedation Options Will Calm Your Child’s Anxious Nerves

Our dentists and staff are specially trained to help even the most nervous patient relax during their dental visit. That includes patients with special needs. Since some patients need a little extra help getting relaxed, we offer a variety of dental sedation options. They include:

  • Inhaled Sedation – The patient will breathe in laughing gas that will give them an all-over feeling of light euphoria.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Your family’s dentist will prescribe a small pill for the patient to take before their procedure. It will help the patient fully relax while in our dental chair.
  • General Anesthesia – We have a medical anesthesiologist who comes in to perform this type of deep sedation. They can put the patient in a sleeplike state and safely intubate their airway as needed.

During your appointment, we’ll discuss each option in detail with you and your child and help you decide which one works best for your family’s situation.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Yes, we would be glad to help your child in dealing with dental anxiety. We take pride that in 35 years of dental practice, we’ve been able to help thousands of nervous patients relax and get the dental care they needed. Our staff is specially trained to listen closely to our patients’ needs, answer their questions fully, and help set their minds at ease.

What can you do to relieve dental anxiety?

We will always take time to listen to our patients’ needs and concerns, answering any questions fully to help ease their minds. In addition, we offer three levels of sedation, one of which will help you or your child relax during an exam or procedure. For children, inhaled sedation with laughing gas works great. Plus, we offer oral conscious sedation in pill form and general anesthesia for our deepest level of sedation.

Are there steps to take at home to relieve dental anxiety?

We have found that patients can take a few important steps at home to help themselves relax while in the dentist’s chair. Whenever someone feels anxious about a visit, they can take six to 10 deep breaths slowly, picturing themselves lying back comfortably in the dental chair. This will ease anxiety and help them relax. Then, when they’re in our office, they can practice this same exercise while settled in the dental chair.
