Understanding that dental visits can be daunting for some children, our pediatric dentists and team offer sedation dentistry as a compassionate solution. This approach ensures a comfortable and anxiety-free experience for children who may feel nervous or have special healthcare needs. Our goal is to provide a calm, relaxed environment where every child can receive the dental care they need without fear or discomfort.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It is ideal for children who experience dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold, need a large amount of dental work or have a hard time sitting still. Sedation can range from mild, where your child is awake but relaxed, to general anesthesia, where they are completely asleep.

The Sedation Dentistry Process

The process of receiving sedation here at Southern Stars Pediatric Dentistry is tailored to each child’s needs and includes:

  1. A thorough evaluation to determine the appropriate level of sedation.
  2. Administering the sedative in a controlled, safe environment.
  3. Close monitoring by our trained professionals throughout the procedure.
  4. Post-procedure care instructions and support for a smooth recovery.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
