Sedation

Simplify Your Child's Dental Visit with Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Anchorage AK

Many children get nervous about going to the dentist. If your child has complicated dental problems or is prone to anxiety, it may be time to consider the benefits of pediatric sedation dentistry. In Anchorage AK, Kids Dental Tree makes sure every child has a pleasant dental visit.

General Anesthesia and Nitrous Oxide Options

We offer the option of general anesthesia that allows children to sleep through the procedure.

General anesthesia prevents physical or emotional pain and may limit the need for multiple visits. Children rarely have complication s from general anesthesia, but to be safe, we only administer the procedure in an outpatient or hospital setting.

Some children still need help but don't need general anesthesia. Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) ca n be a viable option for an anxious child, who will be awake during the procedure. Nitrous oxide quickly wears off, so your child will feel fi ne soon after the visit.
