Our Safe and Effective Dental Sedation

While it’s perfectly normal for children to experience dental anxiety, we always want our patients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible in our office. Whether your child has a big treatment coming up or they just need a little help sitting still in the dental chair, our team can go over our safe and effective sedation options with you before their next appointment.

Nitrous Oxide

Laughing gas is a clear, sweet-smelling gas that is administered through a comfortable mask that is placed over the nose. It stimulates feelings of relaxation, begins working very quickly, and wears off once the mask is removed and the patient breathes normal air for a little while.

Oral Sedation

Medication is taken orally prior to the dental visit, and the patient will begin to feel content and sleepy. Even if they fall asleep during their appointment, it should be easy to wake them up, and they can respond to questions. Our team will take your child’s medical history and overall health status into consideration when determining the best medication to prescribe.

General Anesthesia

Patients are put into a controlled state of unconsciousness. General anesthesia eliminates the patients’ awareness of their surroundings, the formation of memories, and their ability to move. This safe, effective sedation option is reserved for treatments that are performed at a nearby hospital on an outpatient basis.

Emergency Dental Care for Kids

When your child complains of a toothache or knocks out a baby tooth that wasn’t quite ready to come out yet, it can be difficult to know exactly what to do. Fortunately, Safari Children’s Dentistry & Braces offers same-day emergency dental appointments for children. Simply give our office a call, and our experienced team will be happy to assess the situation over the phone and advise. Once an emergency visit is scheduled, we’ll begin preparing a treatment room so we can be ready to go upon your arrival.

Common pediatric dental emergencies include:

  • Throbbing Toothache
  • Broken or Cracked Teeth
  • Dislodged Tooth
  • Excessive Bleeding or Swelling
  • Foreign Object Stuck Between Teeth
