What is Pediatric Sedation & Anesthesia?

Pediatric patients often require dental procedures that can be intimidating and anxiety-inducing for them. At Los Robles Oral Surgery, located in the serene town of Los Gatos, CA, we understand the unique needs of young patients and their families. Dr. Roger Lau and his expert team are committed to providing top-notch pediatric sedation and anesthesia services, ensuring that dental procedures are not only safe and effective but also comfortable and stress-free for both children and their parents.

Pediatric sedation and anesthesia are specialized techniques used to manage a child's comfort, anxiety, and pain during dental procedures. These techniques involve the administration of medication to induce relaxation or even unconsciousness, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the child's individual needs. This approach is especially beneficial for children who have dental anxiety, difficulty cooperating, or require extensive dental work.

At Los Robles Oral Surgery, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our young patients. Our team is experienced in providing various levels of sedation and anesthesia, ranging from minimal sedation (relaxation while remaining fully conscious) to deep sedation (unconscious but easily awakened) and general anesthesia (complete unconsciousness). These options are tailored to each child's specific requirements, ensuring that they receive the appropriate level of care without unnecessary discomfort.
