We created a whole section in our office just for your child to receive their dental treatment in a comfortable relaxing environment while watching their favorite movie on our ceiling mounted TVs. Dr. Aquino worked with children of all ages. She will make sure your child is comfortable and you understand the treatment options that are available. We provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation as two choices to help ease the anxiety of your child.
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas):
Your child will wear a nosepiece that mixes the gas with oxygen. Relaxation and calmness sets in within minutes. After the gas is cut off the effects wear off quickly.
Oral Conscious Sedation:
Allows your child to experience a deep state of relaxation while remaining conscious. This allows us to treat fearful children who would otherwise avoid the dentist. It is a “no needle” approach that many find more accommodating than the traditional IV method. You no longer have to put off your child’s dental needs no matter how complex or simple the treatment may be.
