Sedation Dentistry

Sedation can be a great adjunct to help your child through a dental procedure. We customize each case individually and will discuss sedation only if it is necessary. We offer both laughing gas and general anesthesia.

Laughing Gas
(Nitrous Oxide)

Laughing gas or nitrous oxide is commonly used in dental procedures for mild sedation. This type of sedation is very gentle and short-lived. The nitrous oxide is delivered through a small nose piece. Your child will be awake and responsive throughout the procedure, in a more relaxed state. Once the mask is removed at the end of the visit, the effects of sedation will wear off quickly, enabling your child to resume their normal behavior.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is sometimes necessary for children that are unable to complete dental treatment in a traditional setting due to young age, extent of dental needs, extreme dental anxiety, medical conditions, and/or special needs. These cases are done on an outpatient basis at Maui Memorial Medical Center. 

Experience Matters

Our team is experienced in working with children with a variety of needs. No matter your child’s needs, we will do our best to help them feel comfortable. At Just Keiki Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in honest, high quality, and reliable dental care for each child.
