At Daghlian Pediatric Dentistry & Sokolowski Orthodontics, we don’t gravitate toward using sedation for all of our young patients. In fact, we rarely ever use sedation because we take the time to help our patients feel comfortable and secure with their dental care. Dr. Rita Daghlian believes in helping children cope before resorting to using nitrous. Our team explains each step of their dental treatment to the patient, so they feel less nervous about dentistry. By creating a positive atmosphere at our dental office, we help children to have positive associations with the dentist, which in-turn helps when cultivating a lifetime of good oral health.

When a child does require sedation, we may use nitrous oxide. This service can help your child feel less anxious while sitting in the dental chair. It produces a relaxing, euphoric sensation to help children feel more comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide are quick acting and wear off quickly after completing the child’s procedure.

If you are interested in learning more about how we use nitrous oxide in Huntington Beach, California, please call our office at 714-848-0234. Our dentist and team will happily answer all of your questions, so you feel more at-ease before sending your child to the dentist.
