It’s nerve wracking enough for adults to sit in the dental chair sometimes, let alone kids. At Healthy Teeth Pediatric Dentistry, we’re very sensitive to the fact that fear is just one of the reasons that children can benefit from sedation. And as a parent, you’ll be confident in the knowledge that our Cinco Ranch sedation dentist is both skilled and experienced in administering all three methods that are offered at our office.
The earliest experiences that your child have help to form his or her attitudes about dentistry as she or he grows older. Our Cinco Ranch sedation dentist makes every effort to ensure that every treatment and procedure is gentle and that your child stays comfortable throughout. Sedation is not mandatory, of course, but there are certain instances where it’s helpful. In addition to a nervous child, it’s also ideal for a kid who is fidgety or restless. Needless to say, the accuracy and precision of many treatments require that the patient stays still. Sedation may be the best way to ensure your child’s safety. This is also true when there is a great deal of work that has to be done in a single session. Asking any child not to move for an extended period of time is being unrealistic. And even exceptionally strong gag reflexes are sometimes an obstacle that can be eliminated by our Cinco Ranch sedation dentist. Our options include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation. The pros and cons of each, and especially taking into account your child’s and yours specific needs and preferences, will be discussed beforehand so that the best choice can be made.
Let us make things easy on you and on your child. Set up an appointment to come in by contacting our office right now. Make sure that your child is able to take advantage of necessary care without undue anxiety or challenges.
