Pediatric Dental Sedation in Deer Valley, AZ

For your child to have a positive experience, they must feel relaxed as diagnose and treat. We offer anxiety-free dentistry options at our office in Deer Valley, Arizona.

Is sedating my child during dental work safe?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends dental sedation for pediatric patients who are anxious or struggling with treatment. The AAPD also advises that pediatric dental sedation should only be performed by a pediatric dentist who has experience evaluating, monitoring, managing and treating the unique needs of children.

We strictly follow the AAPD guidelines for administering nitrous oxide. Before beginning, we’ll ask you a few questions:

  • Does your child have a respiratory condition that makes it difficult for them to breathe through their nose?
  • Have they had a recent ear infection?
  • Are they taking any medications? We will need to know all over-the-counter medications and supplements your child takes as well as prescription medications
