At Vital Smiles, we understand that going to the dentist can be scary for kids. That’s why we offer IV Sedation administered by Board Certified anesthesiologist, a form of deep sedation that relaxes your child and calms their nerves. Since the sedative enters through the veins, your child will feel the effects quickly. This form of sedation is carefully monitored and can be adjusted throughout the visit to best suit the needs of your child.
