Proudly serving Rogers and Northwest Arkansas
At Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that many of our young patients are anxious about setting foot in a dentist's office. We are committed to ensuring that every one of our patients is relaxed and comfortable while getting the quality dental care they deserve. One of the ways we do that is by offering sedation services to help your child relax in the dentist's chair!
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry involves administering medication before or during a dental procedure to help a patient relax. We'll also numb the area using a local anesthetic to ensure your child is comfortable and free of pain during treatment.
At Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry, we offer nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas. Your child will breathe in the gas mixed with oxygen through a mask and will remain alert and responsive throughout the procedure. This form of minimal sedation reduces anxiety and dulls the sensation of pain, making it easier to sit still and relax while getting the needed dental care. Once we administer oxygen at the end of the procedure, the effects of the nitrous oxide gas will wear off right away, so your child can go straight back to school!
When Is Dental Sedation Recommended?
Dental sedation is a game-changer when it comes to pediatric dental care. It takes the edge off dental visits and vastly reduces the risk of injury during treatment.
Sedation is beneficial to children with dental anxiety or phobia or those who have difficulty sitting still, especially if they need lengthy or complex dental procedures. It's particularly helpful to children with special behavioral, physical, medical, or intellectual needs. It helps prevent spontaneous movement, guides cooperative behavior, and provides safe and anxiety-free dental care.
Is Dental Sedation Safe?
Dental sedation has been shown to be extremely safe when under the care of an experienced dental professional. At Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry, we have extensive training and experience administering dental sedation to provide comfortable care. We adhere to all recommended safety protocols and never spare any effort to ensure your child is safe, comfortable, and relaxed while in our care.
