We get it – kids don’t always enjoy their dental care. Often, they’re scared about what they’ve seen on TV or heard from other kids, and that impacts their ability to sit comfortably in the dental chair.
Our team makes it easier for kids – including those with special needs – to get the care they need with our dental sedation options. We’ll talk with you and them about any concerns you have. From there, we can help you decide if sedation is right for your child and, if so, which method will be best. Your options include:
In addition to sedation, we also offer painless local anesthetic with The Wand® syringe-free anesthetic. Kids love that there are no syringes involved and their face won’t “feel funny” following their procedure.
“I took my daughter to Evergreen Pediatric & Airway Dentistry twice and had very good experience. Dr. Susan Kim and her assistants are super patient and nice to children. They explained to my daughter how the appliances work by personification. For example, the brush is Mr. Itchy and the straw which sucks water is Mr. Thirsty. They make sure that my daughter understands everything and is well prepared before operating, so that she won’t be afraid. And they gave her toys and stickers as a reward every time. My daughter said she liked this dentistry and I do recommend it to those who have children. Most importantly, for any procedures they would take to my kid, they show much considerations to double confirm how much the cost are covered by insurance provider to get a final reasonable treatment plan with the least cost. Very professional and patients friendly. Solid 5 star recommendation.”

I was completely blown away by how warm, patient, and understanding they were. They put in all the effort to make things as fun and relaxed as possible and didn’t rush the process one bit. 5 stars aren’t near enough.”

Yes, our dental sedation will work for most kids. We offer two options because we understand that different children will respond better to different sedation methods. We’ll go over the details of both options and help you decide which one will work better for your child’s situation and specific needs.
Yes, we only use safe, time-tested sedation options at Evergreen Pediatric & Airway Dentistry. Laughing gas, or inhaled sedation, is mild and gentle enough that it is completely safe to use for kids. For more intense dental anxiety or if your child is simply unable to sit comfortably through their exam or procedure, we also offer general anesthesia administered by a medical anesthesiologist.
The length of the sedative effect varies, depending on the type of sedation used. For laughing gas, your child will inhale the gas through a mask worn over their nose. It wears off quickly when the mask is removed and they won’t feel groggy afterward. In contrast, they may feel the effects of general anesthesia for several hours after their procedure.
Dental sedation for certain procedures is at least partially covered by many insurance plans. You will need to talk to your dental insurance provider to find out more about your child’s specific coverage. We will be happy to assist you further in figuring out the most affordable way to maximize your child’s comfort with dental sedation.
