At Heber Children’s Dentistry, the options are yours when it comes to pediatric sedation dentistry. We understand that all children handle dental procedures differently, and you know your child best. That’s why the type of sedation you choose comes down to your child’s behavior.
Sedation dentistry is a very effective and safe choice for those seeking to ensure a positive dental experience for their children with successful outcomes. Although not for everyone, sedation dentistry is often considered when a child needs a same-day root canal or crowns, or some other more time-consuming, potentially painful procedure.
Unfortunately, when parents hear the word sedation, many concerned thoughts come to mind. What most parents aren't aware of is that there are options available for sedation. It’s important to know the difference so you can make an informed decision. If your child needs a procedure and Dr. Ellis recommends sedation, he will explain in detail the different options available and what affect, if any, it will have on your child.
Our sedation techniques include:
- In-office conscious sedation: The child will drink a little bit of medicine that will usually relax them. The greatest benefit of this form of sedation is the inability of the child to fully remember the visit later.
- IV sedation: In this procedure the child is put to sleep with an IV and will not experience any of the dental procedures.
- General anesthesia, administered at a hospital or surgical center
