Safe Dental Sedation
We want to make sure that your child feels as comfortable as possible during their visit — and to talk to us if they feel nervous! Our Growing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry team in Charlotte, NC, works to create a fun, playful, child-friendly atmosphere and also offers safe, effective pediatric sedation options to ease anxiety and promote well-being. You can book online or give us a call today to learn more and schedule your child’s appointment!
Nitrous oxide is a gas commonly used by dentists to reduce discomfort and relieve anxious feelings. If your child would benefit from using nitrous during a procedure, our team will carefully help them place a breathing mask over their face to allow them to inhale a steady flow of nitrous and oxygen. Your child will be able to breathe comfortably and normally while feeling an increased sense of ease and well-being.
Oral sedation is another great option to help your child feel more comfortable going to the dentist. Because oral sedation comes in pill form, we can prescribe it ahead of time so that your child can take their dose before they even arrive at our practice. This will help soothe any anxiety and gently nudge them into a relaxed, sleepy state that should last throughout their appointment.
We’re A Child-Centered Practice!
Our whole focus is on helping your child. We don’t just want to give them great dental care, but empower them to grow up healthy, happy, and blessed with a beautiful smile. In addition to being a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Vakil is trained in advanced pediatric behavioral management, which is a fancy way of saying he has the knowledge, experience, and instincts to help your child feel safe and comfortable during their visit.
