Sedation & Special Needs

If your child has trouble sitting still, following directions, or has special needs, our office has a solution to allow them to still get the dental care they need. Sedation dentistry is a safe and controlled process for calming children and helping them sit still in the dental chair while the dentists work. This has proven to provide a positive experience for them, making future dental appointments easier.

Is Sedation right for my Child

Your child may be a candidate for sedation dentistry if they have the following:

  • Difficulty sitting still during an appointment
  • Become anxious when visiting the dentist
  • Have a sensitive gag reflex
  • Do not become completely numb by local anesthetics
  • Is sensitive to pain
  • Has had a negative dental experience in the past

If this relates to your child, sedation can help them get the dental care they need without the fear or anxiety. To learn more, schedule a consultation with our team today to talk to a doctor and find out what options are right for your little one!
