Calming Care for Kids in Charlotte NC

sedation-dentistry-for-kidsAt Carolina Kids Dentistry, we go out of our way to make sure that your child experiences calming, compassionate care. From our staff to our surroundings, we foster a fun atmosphere. Charlotte pediatric dentist Dr. Bevin Malley takes pride in helping children maintain happy smiles and discover the rewards of caring for their teeth and gums.

Sometimes, though, the tools required to perform certain procedures can produce sounds that may frighten a child. Or maybe your child needs a tooth extracted or other surgical dental procedure. In these cases, Dr. Malley can administer calming sedation to alleviate discomfort and help your child feel safe and secure.

Safe Sedation

Your child’s wellbeing is always our top priority when you visit our east Charlotte pediatric dentist’s office. Dr. Malley uses proven sedation medications in doses appropriate for children. Depending on the procedure your child is undergoing, Dr. Malley may recommend:

  • Nitrous Oxide – Commonly called laughing gas, this safe, inhaled sedative produces feelings of warmth, relaxation, and complete calm.
  • Oral Sedation – A mild sedative lets children remain awake during dental procedures while inducing a state of total relaxation. Your child won’t remember the details of his or her dental work following treatment.
  • General Anesthesia – Extensive dental work may require general anesthesia, administered in a hospital setting or by an anesthesiologist who comes to our office.
