Your Child Can Relax During Treatment
When your child's general dental appointment indicates the need for additional or specialized dental services, Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry is proud to have the resources and experienced team to address all aspects of oral health in the same office. Our patients are happy that they don’t have to go elsewhere for specialized services, such as sedation dentistry in Charlotte, Davidson, Gastonia, and Kannapolis, NC, and coming soon to Fort Mill, SC.
Nervous Patients Can Relax at Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry
If your child is too young to safely complete treatment or feels nervous about the thought of a dental exam, preventive cleaning, or necessary dental treatment, sedation will make their visit completely stress-free! Our sedation dentists will help your child enter a relaxed state that will keep their mind off of their appointment, or even let them enter a state of dreaming while our dentist works on their mouth. Many patients just like your child come to our office because of our experience using sedation for challenges such as…
- A severe gag reflex
- Inability to sit still
- Difficulty getting numb with a local anesthetic such as Novocaine
- A limited amount of time to complete dental care
- Sensitive teeth
- Dislike of noises, smells, tastes associated with dental care
- Discomfort with needles and shots
- Fear & embarrassment about teeth
What Are the Sedation Dentistry Options?
Inhaled Minimal Sedation – This method has been used in dentistry for over a century and is considered completely safe, even for its use in children. With a mask placed over their nose, your child breathes in nitrous oxide – also referred to as “laughing gas.” This classic type of sedation is effective because it relaxes patients quickly, but also wears off rapidly once the mask is removed.
During your child's initial assessment, our experienced dentist will take the time to inform you of your child's options and what to expect with each. Then, along with your input, our dentists will determine which option is best for your child. We will make sure you’re completely comfortable before beginning treatment - your child's health is our main priority!
