Sedation Dentistry for Children in Garden City, NY
Pediatric Dentistry of Garden City provides sedation options for our young patients who need it. We practice gentle dentistry and many of the kids we treat are calm and relaxed during their treatment without any need for sedation. However, Dr. Stacey Reynolds is dedicated to meeting the needs of all her patients and offers choices for anesthesia.
Our Garden City Sedation Options
Single Tooth Anesthesia – Fear of needles in the application of novocaine is common and understandable. Our single-tooth anesthesia technique typically eliminates any pain associated with this process through a slow and even delivery system. This is achieved through a computer-controlled injection using The Wand.
General Anesthesia – For children who cannot tolerate even simple procedures such as having their teeth counted, we offer general anesthesia that is coordinated with a certified anesthesiologist.
When general anesthesia is necessary, we have a trusted anesthesiologist who administers the medicine and monitors your child throughout the process. During this visit, we perform the exam, take x-rays, and proceed with treatment. We correct as many dental issues as possible and leave your child’s mouth in a much healthier condition.
Continued Relaxation for Children
Nitrous oxide relaxes patients significantly and can be sufficient for those children who have mild to moderate anxiety when visiting the dentist.
For kids who can tolerate their dental procedure with the help of nitrous oxide, parents can rest assured that our team is experienced in its application and that the effects of this method of relaxation do not last past the end of the dental visit and your child will be back to themselves in a matter of minutes.

Benefits of Sedation for Children
Children with dental anxieties or phobias often have difficulty tolerating examinations or corrective dental procedures and may have their dental care prolonged. Because of this, their existing problems may only get worse and they can develop additional complications. Dental sedation is meant to provide a safe and predictable way to treat patients that would otherwise be unable to receive care.
