When your child needs dental care that goes beyond a routine visit, our children’s dentist is committed to ensuring their comfort and safety. Hospital sedation is one option we offer to help manage anxiety, discomfort and to ensure the best outcomes.

What is Hospital Sedation?

Hospital sedation involves the use of medication to help patients relax or sleep through a dental procedure. The level of sedation varies, tailored to the specific needs of your child and the nature of the dental work being performed.

Why Consider Hospital Sedation?

Hospital sedation might be recommended to ease anxiety for children who feel nervous or fearful about dental procedures. It also provides pain relief and comfort during longer or more complex treatments. Additionally, sedation can help ensure that involuntary movements do not interfere with the quality of dental care, particularly for young patients who may find it difficult to stay still.

Our Approach to Hospital Sedation

Our Denver children’s dentist and team emphasize a clear and compassionate communication process from start to finish. Every decision regarding sedation starts with a thorough consultation. Dr. Kojo Danso discusses all aspects of the procedure with you, ensuring that every question and concern is addressed. Our team evaluates your child’s medical history and the specifics of the required dental treatment to determine the safest and most effective sedation plan.

During the procedure, your child’s safety is our utmost priority. Our specialized anesthesiology team closely monitors your child throughout the entire process, adjusting sedation levels as necessary to maintain optimal comfort and safety.

After the procedure, we provide detailed instructions for at-home care and recovery. Our team is always available to support you through your child’s recovery process, offering guidance and assistance to ensure a smooth and comfortable healing phase.
