Comfortable Treatment

At the Center for Pediatric Dental Health, we offer comfortable treatment options to accommodate our patients when necessary.  Sedation dentistry is an option often used as a conscious sedative during a dental visit. It is administered as a gas with a mixture of oxygen and has a calming effect that helps phobic or anxious patients relax during their dental treatment. Because it is a mild sedative, patients are still conscious and can talk to their pediatric dentist during their visit. After treatment, the gas is turned off and oxygen is administered for five to 10 minutes to help flush any remaining gas. The effects wear off almost immediately. If we feel your child will benefit from sedation dentistry we will provide you with pre- and post- sedation instructions.
