Taking your child to the dentist twice a year for regular cleanings and examinations is one of the best things you can do for their health. But sometimes, children can think the dentist is scary with all of the unfamiliar sights, sounds, and people.

At Dental Solutions of Avon/Indy, we pride ourselves on providing stress-free children’s dentistry so young patients can benefit from professional dental care. Read more about how we tailor our services to pediatric patients and ways we help alleviate dental anxiety for them.

Pediatric Dentistry at Dental Solutions of Avon/Indy

Our team understands the importance of creating a fun and patient atmosphere for younger patients. Before your child’s first dental visit with us, we recommend that you get them excited to visit the dentist by making their brushing times fun. You can even buy toy dental tools and play dentist to get them used to the idea of having different instruments in their mouths!

Once your child arrives at our office, we’ll do everything in our power to help them feel comfortable and relaxed during their treatment. Plus, we use state-of-the-art technology at our office to help minimize pain and speed up recovery times!

Sedation Dentistry for Children

For young patients who suffer from dental anxiety, we offer a few different sedation options to help them feel relaxed during their treatment. We’ll recommend a custom treatment plan that’s right for your child and their treatment, but below is a more detailed look at the two sedation options we offer for young patients.

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is an odorless, colorless gas that a patient breathes in right before their treatment. With laughing gas, the patient is awake during treatment but in a deep state of relaxation. The effects of laughing gas quickly wears off once treatment is over.

Oral conscious sedation is more heavy duty and is administered in pill form before the treatment. It may take time for the effects of oral conscious sedation to wear off, so give your child ample time to rest and relax when they’re home.
