At Children’s Dentistry of Northborough, we never want to frighten a child or do anything to make them nervous about visiting the dentist. So, when we must perform invasive or multiple procedures, we often recommend sedation dentistry in Northborough, MA.
Our sedation dentistry options include:
- Nitrous oxide (laughing or happy gas)
- In-hospital sedation
In most cases, nitrous oxide is sufficient. It is a safe gas with no lingering side effects. But for a very invasive treatment—or if your child has special needs—we may suggest in-hospital sedation for best results.
Sedation dentistry is about caring for your child’s emotional well-being, and it allows our children’s dentist in Northborough, MA to perform multiple treatments without disruption or ongoing appointments. Sometimes, it is simply the best option.
Besides sedation, we use anesthesia (numbing) to ensure your child feels no pain during general dentistry treatments like tooth-colored fillings.
