Nitrous Oxide & Sedation Milton, GA

Nitrous Oxide & Sedation

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, our team is experienced in providing gentle, caring pediatric dental care for our young patients. However, there are some children that may still be uneasy about having a dental procedure performed. For these children, we offer nitrous oxide, also referred to as “laughing gas”, and IV Sedation.

Nitrous Oxide – Laughing Gas

Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that is breathed in through the nose through a small nasal mask. The gas is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that calms patients without putting them to sleep. With nitrous oxide, patients are fully aware of what is going on and can respond to and ask questions. Most patients feel a warm sense of well-being and relaxation while breathing in the gas, which helps ease their fear and anxiety during the dental procedure. While the patient is relaxed, our pediatric dentist can safely, quickly, and easily complete your child’s dental treatment. Once the dental visit is over, the child breathes only oxygen which removes the nitrous oxide from the body.

Children’s IV Sedation

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we specialize in working with all children to meet their dental care needs. We understand that coming to the dentist is not always a child’s favorite activity and some may have anxiety when it comes to undergoing dental treatment. To make our young patients more comfortable and at ease, we offer intravenous (IV) sedation. IV Sedation is a safe and comfortable method to help children receive the pediatric dental treatment they require.

Dr. Chong elects to have a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist administer the IV sedation while he is treating your child. Having both doctors looking after your child provides the optimal environment of safety and comfort and delivery of the highest-quality dental care.

IV Sedation and nitrous oxide are some of the safe options and techniques we use at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry to ensure all our patients have a positive dental visit. If you have an anxious child and to learn more about our sedation or relaxation options, contact us online or call our office to discuss your concerns with one of our knowledgeable, friendly team members!

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!

Very happy with Milton Demtal 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.
