More than Just Nitrous Oxide
Having dental anxiety or children who are fearful/nervous about going to the dentist, is a very common thing. So common that Nitrous Oxide has become a staple in most dentist’s office, especially if they treat children. But there are also other sedation options available to you. Here are a few more to consider:
This type of sedation is recommended for children, especially if they are apprehensive about the dentist, very young, or have special needs. It calms them and helps to reduce any anxiety or discomfort they may have with dental treatments. Children will become quite drowsy, and possibly even fall asleep—but they will not be unconscious. There are several different medications that dentists use, and they will choose the best one that is suited for your child’s overall health and dental needs.
This type of sedation is recommended for any child that conscious sedation will not work and they are apprehensive about dental work, a young child, or a special needs child. The procedures are typically still done in the dentist’s office, but a pediatric anesthesiologist will administer and monitor the patient while they are under iv sedation. A dentist’s office will have to be certified to be able to conduct this type of procedure. Sedation during dental procedures manhattan ny 10016
General Outpatient Sedation
This type of sedation is again recommended for children who are not a fit for conscious sedation or IV Sedation. The child will be completely asleep…..this is the same type of sedation used, for example, if your child was having their tonsils removed. Dentists, again, have to be certified to perform these procedures in a hospital environment. Sedation during dental procedures manhattan ny 10016
