Sedation Dentistry Information

Comfortable Pediatric Dental Care in Anthem, AZ

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation is a convenient sedation option we offer for children who may feel anxious or fearful during dental visits. It involves taking an oral medication, allowing your child to feel at ease and calm throughout their treatment.

In-Office General Anesthesia

For children with severe anxiety or those requiring complex dental treatments, we provide in-office general anesthesia. Under the care of certified anesthesiologists, your child will be asleep so we can complete their needed treatment safely and comfortably.
