Office Sedation Dentistry Statesville NC 28677

Comfort Care Dentistry

Most children do not enjoy visiting the dentist because they are afraid of pain or discomfort. Hower, at Iredell Pediatric Dentistry we prioritize creating a relaxing, pain-free environment during your child’s visit to our offices. We provide an array of sedation techniques for your child for an easy and pain-free process!

Topical Pain Relief – Topical pain relief means applying numbing gel to the affected area, in some cases Novocain may also be applied.

Minimal Sedation – This is commonly used when the procedure requires more than removing a single tooth but does not require general anesthesia. Your child will be put in deep relaxation but can be awoken at any time.

General anesthesia – Reserved for when oral surgery is required. Your child will be fully unconscious during the procedure.

Fast office sedation

We also offer the use of nitrous oxide for minor procedures. Nitrous oxide is also known as ‘laughing gas’. We use an inhaler to introduce the gas and provide pain relief. Unlike the pain control methods described above, nitrous oxide wears off quickly and is excellent for allowing your child to quickly return to their daily routine.

Ask your dentist if nitrous oxide is right for your child. Please note: We recommend that children who are prone to bowel obstructions abstain from this type of sedation.
