Your children and teenagers will love the environment at Optim Dental where we provide comprehensive pediatric dentistry services. We're excited about the services and influences we can have on young children's oral health.
Our staff realizes that your child's dental experience can have a lasting effect and that's why we make it our goal to be as patient as possible, so that your child has a positive experience when visiting us.
Comprehensive pediatric dental care starts early on and can prevent serious dental emergencies. You should schedule your child's first visit with Optim Dental by the time their first baby tooth is visible.
Due to anxiety and fear of dental care, many children need a special procedure to allow their treatment to be done safely and efficiently.
Optim Dental provides a secure and proficient means of relieving your child's fear and anxiety when they are with us for a dental visit.
Most of our patients are more comfortable taking medications orally. We believe that it's very effective in providing adequate comfort levels during treatment to patients with dental fears.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Some children are given laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide / oxygen to help them relax during dental treatments. Nitrous oxide / oxygen is a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide.
It's administered through a small breathing mask that is placed over your child's nose, allowing them to relax without putting them to sleep.
The gas is mild and easily taken. With normal breathing, it is quickly eliminated from the body. It's also nonaddictive. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recognizes this technique as very safe and effective.
While inhaling nitrous oxide / oxygen, your child will remain fully conscious and keep all of their natural reflexes.
