Are you worried about your child having a negative dental experience? At Kids Klub Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that going to the dentist can be a little nerve-wracking, especially if it is a new or unfamiliar experience for your child. In our efforts to help your child feel more comfortable during dental treatments, we provide a variety of pediatric sedation options to help their experience be positive and calm. We invite you to browse through what we offer for pediatric sedation dentistry in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, and to give us a call at 480-565-6755 if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sara Bukhari.
We are pleased to offer sedation to our patients who may require complex or lengthy treatments, extremely fearful or anxious patients, and patients who would simply like a more pleasant experience in our office. The goal of sedation for children is to help your child stay calm and receive the required care.
There are various types of sedation for children. Depending on your child’s needs, we may use a form of conscious sedation, such as nitrous oxide (N2O), also known as “laughing gas.” Conscious sedation allows your child to stay awake and able to follow instructions while keeping them feeling extremely relaxed and calm. During your child’s consultation appointment, our dentist will determine which form of sedation is right for their treatment.
Children’s sedation is safe with the right preparation before your child’s appointment and monitoring during and after their appointment. Our office will provide detailed instructions to you and your child about how to prepare for your child’s sedation appointment. Parents can help reduce risk and stress level for their child by following these instructions carefully.
After your child’s sedation appointment, they will feel groggy and drowsy. Make sure someone will be with your child after their appointment for several hours to monitor them. For more information on sedation for children and to find out if sedation may be right for your child, we invite you to contact us today.
