Sedation Hospital Dentistry OptionsSheer Smiles Pediatric Dentistry offers two kinds of Sedation Hospital Dentistry: conscious sedation and general anesthesia.
Conscious SedationNitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a safe, short-term form of sedation that works well for most of our patients. It is a colorless gas that can have a mildly sweet scent and taste. While breathing laughing gas, your child might feel sleepy, warm, or a little giggly.One of the best things about nitrous oxide is that it is a minimally invasive form of sedation, administered through a small breathing mask. Laughing gas is a mix of about 70% oxygen and 30% nitrous oxide, so your child will be able to breathe normally during the procedure. Nitrous oxide has analgesic properties, relieving pain and minimizing the gag reflex. As an incredibly mild form of sedation, nitrous oxide is perfect for children who are nervous about their appointments or who tend to find dental procedures uncomfortable.Nitrous oxide is effective within two to three minutes after the treatment has started, and it completely dissipates from the system within five minutes after the mask is removed. Because laughing gas has no long-lasting effects, your child can return to school or play immediately following their appointment.
IF YOUR CHILD HAS DENTAL ANXIETY, WE OFFER SEDATION DENTISTRY TO MAKE THEIR EXPERIENCE PLEASANT AND COMFORTABLE.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?
Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more
