Using oral medication (or a unique combination), we can help older children and teens by calming their dental fears. Most frequently, your child will be calm and awake for their treatment after taking a pill or combination of medications before coming to the office. What’s interesting about oral sedation is that many times children might not even remember their procedure. Oral sedation is safe, effective, and widely used in pediatric dentistry in Spring, The Woodlands, and Tomball.
Deep intravenous (IV) sedation will give your child the chance to sleep through their treatment. They might still move around or make a funny noise here and there, but we have an anesthesiologist right there with them in the office to oversee their safety. He carefully monitors your child’s heart rate/rhythm, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. Together, we can decide when it’s a good time for your little one to leave following their procedure.
Nitrous Oxide is probably one of the most widely used sedation techniques in Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Spring. So many dentists choose nitrous oxide because it’s mild, wears off quickly, and is less invasive. Your kiddos might hear us referring to nitrous oxide as “silly air” or “laughing gas.” Children breathe this together with oxygen. They don’t usually go to sleep, but most will get more relaxed.
