Dental sedation is one of the best ways to help nervous or anxious kids get the dental care they need in Naperville. At Pinky Promise Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a variety of different dental sedation options for your little ones, including laughing gas, IV sedation, and even general anesthesia, when necessary.
With sedation, your child can relax and feel comfortable during their appointment, and get necessary dental care without fear, discomfort, or anxiety. Give us a call at (630) 687-9292 or contact us online to schedule a consultation and learn more about pediatric sedation dentistry options in Naperville.
The effects of sedation depend on the method you choose at your pediatric dentist in Naperville. Laughing gas has the mildest effects. Your child will feel giggly and happy, and will feel less anxious during their treatment. And after treatment, these effects wear off within a few minutes. They may feel a little dizzy or lightheaded after laughing gas sedation.
In IV sedation, your child will sleep through their appointment, and with general anesthesia, they will be rendered completely unconscious. Since they're deeper methods of sedation, IV sedation and general anesthesia have more deep and long-lasting side effects that can persist for up to 24 hours. Your child may be confused, groggy, and have impaired motor skills. Your child may also be nauseous or have a headache.
For more information about what to expect, we recommend asking Dr. Neelon Patel about your child’s sedation options when you visit Pinky Promise Pediatric Dentistry. She can break down each method in further detail.
