Alternatives to General Anesthesia

Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Fairfield, CA

Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Fairfield, CA - GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and OrthodonticsWe understand that dental anxiety is common among children, especially during invasive procedures. For this reason, we offer general anesthesia with certain treatments to provide a safe and non-distressing experience for your child. However, we also realize that some parents would prefer to avoid general anesthesia, so we also offer alternatives.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, has been safely and successfully used in dentistry for many decades. This gas provides a mild feeling of euphoria along with a gentle anesthetic effect. Laughing gas is safe and easily reversed with a few minutes of breathing normal air. It carries no lasting effects.

Minimally-Invasive Procedures

We are sometimes able to avoid the need for anesthetic altogether by offering minimally-invasive alternatives to traditional dental treatments. These alternatives include minimally-invasive SDF treatment and SMART fillings and Hall crowns instead of conventional crowns.
