Most children who are very young, or have a high level of anxiety, benefit from some level of sedation when they need dental procedures performed. There are safe and effective oral medications available today that can help many children relax enough to have optimal treatment in the dental office. Our office has been providing this safe oral conscious sedation for over 30 years. The doctors will discuss this thoroughly with you if your child is in need of this service.
Deep sedation or general anesthesia is sometimes necessary for children who are medically compromised or otherwise unable to cooperate for dental treatment. These are not services we provide in our office, however we are able to refer you to trusted colleagues who will provide excellent care for your child in an appropriate setting.
