Most of the children we see are treated with our simple approach which is using a gentle manner and, if needed, some local anesthesia for cavity filling and treatment appointments. Yet, there are certain situations when some of our patients need help to cooperate, so that the appointment can be safe and comfortable for everyone. If it is decided that your child will need sedation for treatment, the type of sedation will be based on the following:
-The types of dental procedures.
-The child's past experiences.
-The doctor's recommendation.
-If sedation is indicated for your child, we will discuss the various options as well as the benefits and possible risks with you.
-Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
-In Office Moderate IV Sedation
We answer any questions you may have, because we want you to feel fully informed, as well as for your child's dental procedure to be as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
