Sedation and Anesthesia

Sedation Dentistry is most helpful for:

  • An anxious child
  • Children who require major treatment
  • Children that have had traumatic dental experiences in the past
  • Children with a strong gag reflex
  • Children who are medically compromised or have special needs

Different treatment options are always discussed with parents long before treatment to ensure the right care for your
child is given.


Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a sweet-smelling, colorless blend of gases. The amount of oxygen present in the blend of gases is actually more than what is in the normal air we breathe in the atmosphere. When nitrous oxide is inhaled, it makes most people feel happy, relaxed, and sometimes, giggly—that’s why it is often called “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is a very safe and comfortable way to help many children receive the dental treatment they need.


General Anesthesia

Little Tooth Co. also have the services of Dr. Dillon Atwood, a Board Certified Dental Anesthesiologist, who will provide general anesthesia for our younger pediatric patients, patients with special needs, and teenage patients requiring procedures that warrant deeper levels of sedation.


SOBA Anesthesia

Our dental office is happy to have Dr. Braxton Henderson's services from SOBA Anesthesia for our younger pediatric patients who need specialized treatments that require heavier levels of sedation.
