We Specialize in Dental Anesthesia for Children and Adults
Pediatric and Adult Sedation
Benefits of Dental Anesthesia (Sleep Dentistry) for Children
•No memory (amnesia) of the dental procedure.
•Completion of all dental treatment in one visit instead of multiple trips to the dentist.
•Less pain afterwards since stronger medicines can be given during the procedure.
•Less fear of future dental treatments.
What is your pediatric experience?
•Dr. Abreu is a medical doctor who is a board certified specialist in anesthesia.
•Having spent the last 6 months of residency doing ONLY pediatric cases helped Dr. Abreu develop the skills to take care for children.
•This background has developed the skills needed to make your child feel at ease and comfortable during their anesthesia experience.
How do you tailor anesthesia for children?
•Anesthesia is calculated using each child’s age and weight. This helps deliver the precise amount of medicine needed.
What type of anesthesia will be used?
A light oral sedative given first reduces anxiety. Your child will breathe Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) at which point an IV will be started so that intravenous medications may be given. Children do NOT remember this part.
What are the side effects?
Prolonged drowsiness/grogginess and in rare instances mild nausea or vomiting may occur. This is usually self limited and not a major concern.
You know about the importance of regular dental visits, but if a dental phobia is keeping you from enjoying good oral health, it's time to talk to us at Limelight Mobile Sedation.
