SEDATION & HOSPITAL DENTISTRY
Sedation & Hospital Dentistry
Many parents are understandably anxious when advised that their child requires sedation in order to provide necessary and sometimes extensive dental treatment. Conscious sedation is a behavior management technique that uses medication to assist a child in coping with fear and anxiety and in cooperating with dental procedures. As pediatric dentists, we are trained in the safe administration of these agents and the appropriate monitoring of the sedated child as part of our specialty education.
Our office has safely sedated children since 1977.
We Keep Up with the Latest Guidelines
All of our pediatric dentists attend certified sedation continuing education courses to keep us well informed of new developments in safe sedation techniques. Guidelines developed and published by the AAPD further ensure your child’s safety. Our office strictly adheres to and follows these guidelines for every child. Dr. Nelle and Dr. Sean are all certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and hold certificates for office sedation administered by the Colorado State Board of Dental Examiners.
Discuss Your Sedation Options
We welcome young, anxious children and teens. Our practice offers nitrous oxide, safe in-office sedation and hospital dentistry. We partner with you in finding the best level of sedation for your child or teen based on their specific needs. At Children’s Dentistry, our dentists will spend the time to discuss all your options in detail, and together we will decide what is best for your family.
Dr. Nelle and Dr. Sean are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. They are on the staff at the Children’s Hospital Colorado, Centrum Surgery Center, and the Children’s Hospital Colorado North Campus.
