Sedation Options

At Camas Pediatric Dentistry, we offer different options for children with dentist-related anxiety.

We understand that oral health and general health are intertwined. We ensure every aspect of care is deliberate and purposeful. Our dentists and staff  strive to develop a welcoming, trustful and caring relationship with each patient.
For children who have anxiety about dental treatment, we offer different sedation levels to ensure a comfortable experience in our office. If a child needs minimal sedation for an appointment, we offer nitrous oxide. This gas relaxes the child while they remain conscious. If nitrous oxide does not suffice, we may offer the child oral sedation in liquid form that is more effective. For children who have severe dentist-related anxiety, we offer general anesthesia. An anesthesiologist administers general anesthesia so that the dentist can properly deliver treatment, in a safe and controlled environment. For children with extreme anxiety or other medical issues, we offer treatment in a hospital setting, ensuring pinpoint accuracy for each procedure performed.
