Our team of Charlottesville sedation dentists is dedicated to ensuring a safe, serene visit for your child, making us the trusted choice for gentle, effective dental care.

Ensuring comfort and safety

Our sedation dentistry is designed to address anxiety, extensive dental needs, or special healthcare requirements. It’s ideal for children who feel nervous about dental visits, those requiring significant dental work, or children with special needs.

Benefits of sedation dentistry

  • Reduces dental anxiety and fear, ensuring a calm, relaxed experience.
  • Allows for multiple procedures in one visit, saving time and reducing stress.
  • Minimizes discomfort and pain during and after dental procedures.
  • Enhances the effectiveness of treatment by allowing dentists to work more efficiently.

Sedation Options

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves the administration of a sedative medication through a pill, creating a relaxed, yet conscious state. It’s ideal for children who experience mild to moderate anxiety, making their dental visit significantly more comfortable.

Deep Intravenous Sedation

Deep intravenous sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream, offering a deeper level of sedation without full unconsciousness. This option is suitable for extensive dental procedures or for children who require a more profound relaxation to receive dental care comfortably.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is used to induce a state of full unconsciousness, ensuring that the child feels no discomfort and has no memory of the procedure. It’s typically reserved for very young children, those with significant dental needs, or children who find it extremely difficult to cope with dental procedures.
