Sedation Dentistry

Southland Children’s Dentistry has an experienced pediatric anesthesiologist on staff that administers intravenous (IV) sedation to patients who are fearful or extremely anxious about their dental visits. IV sedation is sometimes referred to as “sleepy dentistry” or “twilight dentistry”, and involves administering a dose of sedatives directly into the bloodstream through an IV. Prior to this, our pediatric anesthesiologist will administer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or a small injection to quickly relax your child prior to getting his/her IV. This will immediately calm your fearful or anxious child, and they will not easily recollect anything this time. We do highly recommend informing your child’s dentist of any medication or medical treatments they are receiving prior to their procedure. Our pediatric anesthesiologist will discuss pre-op and post-op instructions with you in advance to give you time to ask any questions that you may have.
