Sedation Dentistry - American Pediatric Dental Group

Sedation Dentistry

For many patients, especially children, a dental chair is far from relaxing and dental treatments can cause a lot of anxiety. Sitting still in a dental chair is especially hard for kids! With the help of sedation dentistry, your child can feel at ease while receiving the dental care that they need. By providing your child with good dental experiences at an early age, you can help them feel comfortable visiting their dentist on a regular basis as they get older. 

Sedation Dentistry Offered at American Pediatric Sedation Center

American Pediatric Sedation Center is a state-of-the-art dental office offering sedation services to patients who are fearful of going to the dentist. When combined, pediatric dentistry and sedation have many advantages. At American Pediatric Sedation Center, we practice sedation dentistry with a board-certified pediatric dentist who has a sedation license and a physician anesthesiologist when necessary. The goal of sedation is to have all of the child’s dental treatment completed in one appointment, with the child being relaxed and having little to no recollection of the procedure itself. In this way, the patient can have a positive experience while visiting the dentist and furthermore, since treatment can be completed in one visit, it allows treatment to be completed in a timely manner so that cavities don’t progress. 

Nitrous Oxide

At American Pediatric Dental Group, we offer nitrous oxide as a sedation option to give your child a relaxing dental experience. Nitrous oxide is effective for both children and adults and is administered through a facial mask. Once the mask is placed over your child’s nose, the effects of sedation will begin almost immediately. With nitrous oxide, your child can communicate with their dentist when needed, but will not be startled by surrounding sounds or smells during treatment. Sedation will begin to wear away as soon as the mask is removed.

If you are interested in pediatric sedation dentistry, call one of our Florida offices today! If you have questions regarding sedation dentistry, a consultation can be scheduled to help you determine the best options for your child. Giving your child a great dental experience can help them receive the treatment that they need to maintain a healthy smile!

My son has had his last three appointments here and we are super happy and satisfied, the dental assistant who treated us today (Her name is Akita I think) was exceptionally patient and a good explainer. The doctor was excellent too. Even though the location is a bit far from where I live, I 100% prefer to come to this location than to the nearest location. Thanks for everything and keep it up.

Staff is always welcoming, but today they really went beyond. I am very grateful and pray God continue blessing them. I really recommend this place I have been taking my children here for almost over 8yrs. I had set appointments for my 2 children. But one needed an additional service and I had requested to be called for any cancellations due to insurance problems. They immediately without any hesitation started contacting the up coming set appointments that had not confirmed and were able to find a cancellation and my child was able to be seen for the additional service. Thank you so much for your help!

I take my daughter for her annual visit every six month and every time I go is awesome! Doctors are very friendly and understanding with kids, and also take parents in consideration to join the process and explain everything you need to know about your child's dental health. Making and rescheduling appointments is very easy. And there's almost no wait time. Front desk staff is very polite and nice. Very happy with their services.

The office is clean and inviting. From the receptionist to the Dr, everyone was friendly. Ms. Eddy did a great job with my kids. She spoke in a caring manner and explained everything she was doing. The Doctor answered all of my questions and gave great feedback. I would highly recommend this office.
