Sleep dentistry

Looking for a dental care solution for your anxious or special needs child?

Sedation Options

Sedation dentistry is the use of a moderate sedative (calming medicines) to treat particular needs or anxiety during dental care for your child. Additionally, sedation may also be utilized when many procedures must be performed at the same time or if your child has a strong “gag” reaction. At Kaleidoscope Kids Dentistry, we offer a multitude of sleep dentistry options for kids to help make your child comfortable upon their next visit.

Our best pediatric dentist Salt Lake City exceeds the protocol and criteria mandated by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for safe performance of 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 laugh just as hard while under the influence of this drug-free technique. 

oral conscious sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation is a common technique that many dental offices use to help kids stay calm during treatments. The process involves giving the child an oral medication which provides them with a feeling of relaxation and happiness, so they can enjoy their visit more!

 

IV Sedation

IV sedation is a safe and painless way for children to have their teeth extracted. Not only will it keep the child calm, but they won’t be in any discomfort during this process. This is a safe way for a child with extreme anxiety or gag reflexes to have more extensive dental work done while they take a litle snooze.
