Some children may experience anxiety about going to the dentist or simply may be unable to sit still through a procedure. To help make the dentist as safe and comfortable as possible, we offer pediatric sedation dentistry in the Las Vegas area. Dr. DeLisle is a board-certified dental anesthesiologist, with experience treating thousands of patients under general anesthesia.
What Is Pediatric Sedation Dentistry?
With sedation dentistry for kids in Las Vegas, our staff offers a variety of sedation methods to help your child relax throughout their dental procedure. There are different types of sedation depending on your child’s needs. The most common type of sedation is nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. The gas is inhaled through a mask and provides a relaxing, calming effect.
If your child has severe anxiety or other special needs, we offer higher levels of sedation. Oral sedation and IV sedation can be administered before treatment, and your child will have little to no memory of the procedure.
If your child requires general anesthesia, our dentists work with the next door Sun Valley Surgery Center at 4090 North Martin Luther King Blvd. We work extensively with their anesthesiologists and staff on a weekly basis to ensure that your child gets top quality care.
Who Should Consider Pediatric Sedation?
Pediatric sedation dentistry in Las Vegas is ideal for children with dental anxiety or children with special needs. It can also be effective for very young children or children who have trouble sitting still. Your child’s dentist may also recommend sedation if your child needs a lengthy or extensive dental treatment.
