Sedation for Children

Sedation for Children at Our Anchorage, AK, Dentist

We know that visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for many people, especially children. Sometimes the fear of going to the dentist can deter people from ever going in for regular dental cleanings, leading their overall oral health to deteriorate and making an eventual emergency visit to the dentist far more involved.

At Coplin Chris DMD in Anchorage, AK, we provide sedation for children to help make the experience a positive one. With a minor amount of sedation, the dental experience can turn from a difficult battle for routine cleanings to a calm and simple trip.

How sedation dentistry works

Sedation dentistry for children involves administering a small amount of sedation ahead of an appointment so they will be relaxed throughout the appointment or may even sleep during the dental treatment. If you have a child that fears going to the dentist or refuses to sit still during an appointment due to worries about the visit, you may want to discuss sedation dentistry with our team.

If you’re interested in sedation dentistry, we’ll schedule a consultation with you and your child to talk about the details of sedation for children and the range of options available. If you decide to try sedation dentistry for your child, they can expect to enjoy a relaxed, anxiety-free dental visit, helping protect their oral health and prevent greater issues down the road.

We have plenty of room for parents to be with their children during treatment. We know the dentist can seem scary for children, so we want to make sure they are as comfortable as possible.
