Sedation DentistryAt Ruby Canyon Dental

Pediatric Dentistry

Laughing Gas

A mild form of inhaled sedation that we administer through a small mask placed over your nose. It makes the patient feel relaxed, giddy, and at ease.
Pediatric Dentistry

Oral Conscious Sedation

A versatile form of sedation that can provide mild to moderate sedation depending on the dosage. The patient remains awake but feels drowsy and completely calm.
Pediatric Dentistry

IV Sedation

A form of sedation that we administer through an IV in the patient’s hand or arm. It works quickly and puts the patient in a state of deep relaxation, and most patients don’t remember their procedure afterward.

Do I Need To Have My Tooth Pulled?

Pediatric Dentistry

Severe Dental Trauma

Your tooth may need to be extracted multiple attempts at saving it through a root canal procedure that is not successful.
Pediatric Dentistry

Orthodontic Purposes

Your dentist may recommend the extraction of one or more teeth in a jaw to create room for teeth realignment during orthodontic treatment.
Pediatric Dentistry

Impacted Teeth

If the soft tissue surrounding impacted teeth frequently gets inflamed, we recommend that the impacted tooth be extracted.
Pediatric Dentistry

Extra Teeth

Extra teeth need to be extracted because they can create oral hygiene maintenance, eating, and speech problems.
Pediatric Dentistry

Wisdom Teeth

Our team recommends removing wisdom teeth to maintain overall oral health and avoid impaction, jaw pain, inflammation, gum disease, and other dental health concerns.

When Should I Take My Child To The Dentist For The First Time?

Your child deserves the best start in life. That’s why it’s important to take your child’s oral health care and dental development seriously. Your child’s first tooth will come in at around 6 months of age, and you should expect to take them to their first dental appointment by their first birthday. This will allow our dentist to monitor your child’s changing oral health needs and help you understand how to care for their developing teeth.
