Our team exceeds the protocol and criteria mandated by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for safe performance of sleep dentistry for kids. Our doctor is committed to providing the best dental care and is proud to be one of the best pediatric dentists in Salt Lake. At Kaleidoscope Kids Dentistry, we offer the following sleep dentistry options for kids:
LAUGHING GAS (NITROUS-OXIDE)
Laughing gas provides mild sedation. It’s safe to use and has minimal side effects, which makes it an ideal choice for dental needs in children! While inhaling laughing gas your child will remain fully conscious with all their natural reflexes intact–meaning they can still engage with the doctor and family. We aim to provide anxiety free dental care for your child so they can have healthy teeth with zero stress.
oral conscious sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a common and helpful technique that many dental offices use to help kids stay calm during treatments. This involves giving the child an oral medication which provides them with a feeling of relaxation and happiness, so they have an easier time with their procedure.
IV sedation is a safe and painless way for children to have their teeth fixed; eliminating any discomfort during this process. This is a safe way for children with extreme anxiety or those who have more extensive dental work to complete to do so in comfort, while asleep.
