Yes, There is Sedation Dentistry for Kids! Milton, GA

While we go to great lengths to create a comfortable and fun environment for kids, we understand that going to the dentist can trigger anxiety and fear for many children. That’s why we proudly offer sedation dentistry in addition to our list of kid-friendly amenities at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry. Many parents assume sedation dentistry is just for adults. The truth is, there are sedation options that are perfectly safe for kids. Going to the dentist is non-negotiable for your child’s health. But the appointment doesn’t have to be a major battle or trauma in your household. We encourage you to ask about your sedation dentistry options at our office prior to your next pediatric dental visit.

What Can Sedation Dentistry Accomplish?

There is no reason to avoid dental care due to anxiety or fear of discomfort. Sedation dentistry allows patients of all ages to relax comfortably while we perform their dental treatments. Some types of sedation dentistry does not put your child to sleep! Instead, it is a calming tool for those with dental anxiety, severe gag reflex or other issues that can impede a comfortable experience at the dentist. We also utilize IV sedation dentistry for lengthy dental procedures or for children who have physical or mental disabilities that make it difficult to sit still during their appointment.

Your Sedation Dentistry Options in Lawrenceville & Milton

The most convenient and widely used form of sedation is nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.” It has been used for many decades as a safe sedation technique for dental patients. Just breathing in the gas can put your child into a relaxed state within minutes. Nitrous oxide is an easy way to help those with mild to moderate dental anxiety or children who have trouble sitting still.

Not only is laughing gas extremely safe for young patients, but the effects wear off within minutes of removing the nose piece or mask. Dental treatments can be completed efficiently and without interruption. Your child will be free to return to school or other activities.

We are also uniquely equipped to offer a deeper level of sedation for those who need it. Our dental practice has elected to have a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist administer IV sedation for certain situations and children.

Would sedation dentistry help your child relax about professional dental care? Talk to our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry. We want dental visits to be a stress-free and comfortable experience for every child that walks through our doors.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
