Hospital Services

We offer safe sedation options when necessary – we understand that sometimes the dental chair can be too much for a child and something extra is needed to help calm their nerves.

Safe Sedation Options for Kids

We are dedicated to giving your child the most positive dental experience possible. At the end of their appointment, we want them to leave with a smile - not only because of our quality work, but because they had a good time! When your child sees us regularly, they’re less likely to develop dental problems in the future. We want your child to grow up enjoying their routine dental examinations. We have proper anesthetics for restorative work like extractions or fillings to ensure little or no pain.

Our sedation options are safe, effective and comfortable for your child including:

  • Nitrous Oxide
  • Oral Conscious Sedation
  • General Anesthesia

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas mixed with oxygen that once inhaled promotes an extreme sense of relaxation. This is a great option for younger kids who are feeling anxious about the dental chair. They’ll remain conscious and be able to answer questions during their treatment. Once the nitrous oxide is removed, your child will feel back to normal in minutes without side effects.

General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia is recommended for apprehensive or pre-cooperative children, children with special needs, or children that are not candidates for nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation. General anesthesia will render your child completely asleep during treatment. Canyon Kids Dental works closely with a group of anesthesia providers to safely administer the general anesthesia. Our doctors have special privileges at area hospitals and dental surgical centers.
