Conscious Sedation for Mildly Apprehensive Children

For children who are older and experience mild dental anxiety, conscious sedation may be an option. This highly effective method can be administered orally or through nitrous oxide (N20-02) inhalation.

Deep Sedation for Children Who Cannot Cooperate
During Treatment

In cases where a child is unable to cooperate during dental treatment due to their age or maturity level, our practice may utilize deep sedation. This option will be discussed with the parent(s)/guardian(s) prior to treatment to ensure the best possible outcome.
