Sedation Dentistry

Your Child Can Sleep Right Through Their Dental Treatment

If your child has fear of doctors, a bad gag reflex, or is a child with special needs, Cool Kid Dental has a solution to put your child at ease. With our sedation dentistry in North Port, FL, and the Venice, Port Charlotte, and Englewood, FL, areas, your child can receive the oral health treatment and care they deserve without suffering from anxiety or fear.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry will allow your child to sleep comfortably while their teeth are fixed. It will truly make their visit worry-free. Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, will help your child enter a relaxed state that will keep their mind off their appointment, or even let them enter a state of dreaming while undergoing treatment. By the end of the visit, and depending on the type of sedation used, your child will be fully lucid, alert, and ready to carry on with the rest of their day!

Sedation Options

We offer gentle and effective nitrous oxide (Happy Gas) and IV sedation for more complicated cases. Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, will determine which sedation option is best for your child. If IV sedation is necessary, we utilize the safest method by bringing in Board-Certified Pediatric Anesthesiologists and Pediatric Nurses to administer the medicine. Your child can sleep through their visit just like older kids do to get their wisdom teeth pulled. We will answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s treatment and sedation prior to beginning - your and your child’s comfort is our priority!

Contact us today to learn more about our sedation dentistry options. We look forward to providing your child with stress-free dental care!
