Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

Children's Sedation

For many children, visiting the dentist is a frightening concept. From needles to drills, the experience can cause a great deal of anxiety for them. It doesn’t have to be a scary experience for them though. With sedation dentistry at your Newnan dentist, your child can receive important dental care they need while remaining completely relaxed and calm.

If your child suffers from "dental phobia," let us help. It's A Small World offers several sedation options to help ease your child’s anxiety.

Nitrous Oxide

Probably the most common form of sedation dentistry, nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" is an excellent, safe way to remove your child’s anxiety and provide a peaceful dental visit. In this process:

  • An inhaler which releases the gas is placed over your child’s nose.
  • Within a few moments, they will experience a serene, calm feeling which will continue throughout the procedure until the gas is removed.
  • After the procedure is complete, the gas wears off quickly with no side effects.

Compassionate care in a pain-free environment is what It's A Small World in Newnan believes in.  If you have any questions or concerns about sedation dentistry for your child, or would like to make an appointment for them, please call 770-502-9733 today.
