Pediatric Sedation Dentistry for Tremonton, UT
Every parent knows going to the dentist with nervous or squirmy children can be difficult. Many children have a fear of going to the dentist, no matter what age. Even simple tooth cleanings can be difficult for your anxious child. Castle Creek Pediatric Dentistry has the solution. We offer sedation dentistry for your children, allowing them to have a calm and anxiety-free dentist visit. We provide oral sedation for children all across Tremonton, UT.
Nitrous Oxide for Pediatric Sedation
Nitrous oxide is the most commonly used sedation dentistry method. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide has brought dentistry success for decades. When we use nitrous oxide, your children will be awake and relaxed during their procedure. Our friendly staff will administer nitrous oxide through a mask attached to your child’s nose, allowing them to receive a mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide. The nitrous oxide will kick in almost instantly, allowing our team to start their work without distressing your child. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly.
Oral Sedation for Children
If we need to complete a more difficult or complicated procedure, we might suggest administering oral sedation. To use oral sedation, your child will need to fast the morning of the procedure. You also must ensure that your child is free from any respiratory symptoms at least two weeks before the dental procedure. For either of the sedation options we offer, we request that there are two adults present.
IV Sedation & General Anesthesia
If your child has extreme nerves when going to the dentists and you’re worried that nitrous oxide won’t be enough, we also offer IV sedation and general anesthesia. We recommend these options for children who are extremely uncomfortable during a procedure. One of our nurse anesthetists can complete the IV sedation in our office. General anesthesia, on the other hand, must be completed at a hospital. Depending on your preference or insurance, this can be completed at Mount Ogden or Primary Children’s Hospital.
