What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry in our pediatric dental office ensures a comfortable and stress-free experience for children during their dental treatments. We offer two types of sedation: mild sedation using nitrous-oxide-oxygen inhalation, commonly known as “laughing gas,” which helps children relax while remaining conscious; and for more complex procedures, we provide treatment under IV/general anesthesia either in-office or at Colorado Children’s Hospital, ensuring optimal comfort and safety for our young patients.

Common Procedures Performed with Sedation

Sedation dentistry can be utilized for various dental procedures, ensuring your child’s comfort and cooperation. Some common treatments performed under sedation at Northfield Pediatric Dentistry include:

  • Dental cleanings and examinations
  • Fillings and restorations
  • Tooth extractions
  • Other specialized procedures as recommended by our expert dentist

Benefits of Sedation Dental Care for Children

  • Anxiety and Fear Management: Sedation dentistry helps alleviate anxiety and fear, allowing children to undergo necessary dental treatments without stress or distress.
  • Enhanced Cooperation and Reduced Discomfort: With sedation, children are more likely to remain calm and cooperative during procedures. It minimizes discomfort and enables our dental team to perform treatments efficiently.
  • Efficient and Time-Saving Dental Visits: Sedation dentistry allows multiple procedures to be performed in a single visit, reducing the need for multiple appointments and minimizing disruption to your child’s routine.
  • Positive Dental Experiences: By ensuring a positive and pain-free dental experience, sedation dentistry helps build trust and confidence in children, encouraging them to maintain good oral health habits in the long run.
