Sedation Dentistry for Children in Cumming GA
Receiving professional dental care is vital for children to maintain their oral health. For children who strongly resist dental care, sedation is often necessary. Sedation allows children to relax and helps them cope better and cooperate, making their treatment time shorter and more successful. For children with special needs, sedation helps prevent spontaneous movement and reduces the risk of injury.
Cumming Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) at our office for our young patients with dental fears.
Don’t Let Anxiety Keep Your Kids from Visiting Dentist
It’s imperative that your child’s smile is examined regularly and that any necessary treatment is performed. Nitrous oxide is a safe method of sedation for kids and will promote a positive experience and more confidence when they return.
Cumming Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics provides a kid-friendly environment and gentle, calming staff members that put both parents and children at ease.
How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is delivered through a mask. Our hygienist makes a game out of counting with your child, and in no time they are happy yet alert enough to communicate with the dentist.
The effects of nitrous are short-acting and don’t leave kids groggy. They can remember their experience and begin building trust in our compassionate and gentle dental team.
We provide nitrous oxide because we are committed to helping preserve kids’ teeth and gums and making each visit fun and comfortable. We understand the importance of regular dental care as it relates to children’s oral and overall health and successful dental development. If you have any further concerns or questions about sedation, give our office a call and schedule a consultation today. We enjoy getting to know each child and creating a healthy smile that reflects their unique personality.
