Getting dental care is not always easy for kids.
Some can’t sit still long enough to receive treatment. Some find it difficult and uncomfortable to open their mouths so wide. Some have had unhappy experiences with dentistry in the past, while some are simply too young to understand what is happening or simply frightened.
We treat kids with respect and talk to them on their level.
And we use the quietest tools and gentlest touch possible. But when all of those efforts just aren’t enough, or when more extensive treatments are necessary, sedation dentistry can bridge the gap between fear and total comfort.
Our mission really is to take the fear out of dentistry – and sometimes, that means utilizing the soothing effects of dental sedation. Sedation dentistry safely and effectively relaxes our patients so they can receive the care they need, without any fear. We offer both nitrous oxide – commonly referred to as laughing gas – and IV sedation, for extensive treatment needs.
