Parents Are Finding Safe Pediatric Dental Sedation Options at Greensboro, NC Dentist

When your child’s dentist comes to inform you that your kid is going to need to be sedated for an upcoming dental procedure, you want to know, with absolutely no uncertainty, that your child is going to be safe. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry are here to promise that, in cases where dental sedation is necessary, your child will absolutely remain safe. Dr. Isharani has been incredibly successful with pediatric dental sedation for kids in Greensboro, NC for years.

Sedating a child may be recommended for long and complex procedures or for children who are experiencing extreme anxiety or dental fear. Sedating a child is very controlled and very safe.

Sedation Options

The three main forms of pediatric sedation include oral sedation, nitrous oxide & intravenous sedation. Your child’s dentist will determine which form is necessary based on the situation.

Oral Sedation is delivered orally. Oral sedation won’t put the child to sleep but will assist in keeping them calm and in a relaxed state.

Nitrous Oxide, also called laughing gas, will also helps keep children calm. A mask will be applied over the child’s nose so that a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen can be delivered and inhaled. Within a short time, span, normally 5 minutes, the child will be relaxed and euphoric. Once the dental procedure is over, unadulterated oxygen will be administered to the child to bring them out of their sedated state while also clearing out any lingering nitrous oxide.

Intravenous Sedation, or general anesthesia, is the strongest form of pediatric sedation available and will be delivered through an IV into the child’s vein. This will result in a child who is sleeping for the procedure. It’s carefully and closely controlled to ensure maximum safety. Once the procedure is over, the anesthesia will be gradually lessened to slowly bring the child out of his or her sedated state in a safe manner.

Pediatric dental sedation is proven to be safe and hassle-free for any pediatric patient in need. With clear communication between parent and dentist, all options can be reviewed so that the best one is selected for the dental procedure. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team have had great success with these methods and are available for consultations and to answer any questions at (336) 804-8668.

Success Story

Sona J. Isharani, DDS
Rating : 5 5 Stars
Deirdre B.

We selected this practice based on a wonderful presentation given by Dr Sona at a moms’ group I’m a member of. She left such an impression that my husband agreed we’d give her a shot.

The staff was extremely kind and professional! With our daughters being only 12 months old, I was thoroughly impressed with her patience and loved the fact that the exam was conducted while they were in my lap as I sat knee to knee with Dr Sona as opposed to attempting to keep someone so little still in a standard examination chair.

We look forward to our next visit and with time, we know the girls will also!
