Children’s Sedation Dentistry for North Ogden, UT
One of the greatest challenges that pediatric dentists can face during treatment is squirmy children. Some children don’t like going to the dentist and can have anxiety and fear when facing procedures like tooth fillings or even simple cleanings. At Castle Creek Pediatric Dentistry, we offer sedation dentistry for kids in the North Ogden, UT area.
Nitrous Oxide for Pediatric Sedation
Nitrous oxide is the most commonly known sedation dentistry method. Nitrous oxide has been successfully used for decades. You may know this gas as “laughing gas”. This gas does not stir up giggles, but does help your children feel relaxed during their dental visit.
Your children will still be awake and aware during the procedure. Our team will administer the nitrous oxide with a mask attached to the child’s nose. With this mask secure on their face, the child will receive a mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide. This pediatric sedation works almost instantly and effects wear off rather quickly.
Oral Sedation for Children
For more difficult procedures that will require more of our dentist’s care, we may use oral sedation. When your child uses the oral sedation method, they’ll need to fast the morning of the procedure. Also, your child must be free of any respiratory symptoms for at least two weeks before the dental procedure. With all of our pediatric sedation dentistry options, we ask that two adults are present.
We have experience with children from North Ogden, Ogden, Pleasant View, Harrisville and beyond. Whether your child is one or 12, our pediatric sedation is available for kids of all ages. Our certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Simkins is an expert in helping children with special needs.
