Are you familiar with sedation dentistry and how it works? Modern dentistry allows for state-of-the-art treatments and cutting-edge technologies to provide comfortable dental visits whenever your child needs them. Through sedation dentistry, various treatments can be used to minimize the discomfort that your child may feel.

If you are only looking for a mild form of sedation to help calm and relax your child during an oral health care visit, gas sedation, also known as inhaled minimal sedation, can be beneficial. Through the use of laughing gas, which is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide, your child simply breathes in gas. Similarly, a pill can be taken known as oral sedation, which typically takes an hour to take effect. Oral sedatives can be adjusted based on the dosage required to help treat your child. It can range from a mild relaxant to a sleep agent.

We also offer outpatient general anesthesia in the nearby hospital which can place your child gently into a deep state of unconsciousness from which they may not awake until a counteragent is used or when the anesthesia finally wears off.

If your child requires a sedation dentistry treatment in Irving, Texas, Pacific Hearts Dentistry would love to help you. For a thorough examination to assist with their oral health care procedures, you can set an appointment with Dr. Rawaha Memon by calling our dental office at 972-957-3577. We are glad to help your child have a comfortable, relaxing dental experience!
