Our goal is to make your child’s experience as comfortable as possible. Modern Medicine has made Sedation Dentistry safe and affordable. We offer different sedation options to fit a variety of situations. Please ask if Sedation Dentistry would be appropriate for your child.
Nitrous, or “Laughing Gas”, is easy and always available. For the majority of the procedures children need, Laughing Gas can be a very effective and relaxing way to have dental work performed. It works quickly and wears off quickly. It will not induce sleep or have an amnesia effect.
Oral Conscious Sedation
This form of sedation is so named because it is taken by mouth and does not induce sleep. Kids will drink a mixture of medications that cause enhanced relaxation and a short period of amnesia. Our drink may be different from other dental offices, so please ask if you feel this procedure might benefit your child’s dental visit.
We have worked with Aspen Anesthesia Services for over 10 years. We have come to trust their expertise and use of all modern anesthesia delivery and monitoring devices. They provide in-office deep sedation that allows us to focus on completing all dental care in one visit. Aspen Anesthesia is always happy to discuss the details of the service they provide. Please let us know if you would like to know more about this type of sleep dentistry.
Out-Patient General Anesthesia
For some of the children we see, General Anesthesia at Primary Children’s Hospital may be the safest environment to provide dental services. We use the Pediatric Anesthesiologists and Nurses at the Riverton Primary Children’s Hospital. Do not hesitate to call with your questions 801-676-8899.
