Dental Anesthesia for Children


Most dental procedures can be done with local anesthesia alone, or sometimes in conjunction with sedative pills or nitrous oxide.  However, certain complex cases, anxious patients,

or children may require a more controlled and deeper level of IV sedation or general anesthesia.  IV sedation reduces consciousness, pain, and anxiety while maintaining patient cooperation. On the other hand, general anesthesia removes memory of the event and may be necessary in certain cases.


Dr Johnson is exceptionally well trained at providing all levels of anesthesia so that your dentist can fully focus on your dental procedure.  This allows for a safer, more predictable and comfortable experience for both the patient and the dentist.


Dr. Tyler Johnson is our dental anesthesiologist.
