Sedation
When a patient suffers from dental anxiety or dental phobia, varying degrees of dental sedation can be utilized, including conscious sedation with sedatives, nitrous oxide sedation, and treatment under general anesthesia. These techniques enable patients who might otherwise avoid the dentist to receive dental treatment necessary for a healthy smile.

At Hamilton Pediatric Dentistry we currently offer the following methods of sedation for your child:

Nitrous Oxide Sedation
In one form of conscious inhalation sedation, nitrous oxide gas (also known as laughing gas) is used to induce a state of relaxation. A local anesthetic will be administered in combination with nitrous oxide sedation to eliminate pain.

Oral Sedation
At times, children need help cooperating for their dental treatment. For some patients, oral sedation is a treatment option. Oral sedation does not provide pain relief, so an injection of local anesthetic would also be administered. Dr Veronica will discuss this option with the parents so they can make the best treatment decision for their child.

General Anesthesia
This method of dental sedation refers to the use of anesthetic to render the patient unconscious. This is an option for patients who have extensive dental treatment needs and are unable to cooperate for care in our office. The patient is cared for at Spectrum Health South Pavilion, and is placed under general anesthesia by an anesthesiologist. This allows us to complete all of your child's dental treatment in one visit. Dr. Hamilton will discuss this option with you to decide if it is the best course of treatment to meet your child's individual needs.
