Preventive dental treatments can go a long way in setting your child up for success in the future. Preventing dental issues before they occur offers many benefits, and children should always be visiting the dentist for routine exams and cleanings even if they have healthy teeth and gums. Our preventive services include:
We frequently restore the smiles of our patients through gentle and effective restorative treatments, like composite fillings, stainless steel and tooth-colored dental crowns, and root canals for baby teeth and adult teeth. Our team excels at performing advanced restorative treatments including:
Relaxing Sedation Options
Dental sedation like laughing gas and oral sedation helps children who experience anxiety during dental appointments relax and remain calm and still during their appointments. We also offer general anesthesia, which allows the patient to receive advanced dental treatments without remembering anything from their procedure.
- Laughing Gas – this option is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas that is administered through a nose mask and promotes a relaxed, lightheaded feeling. Laughing gas begins working right away and wears off once the mask has been removed and the patient breathes normal oxygen for a few minutes.
- Oral Sedation – Medication is taken orally and makes the patient feel calm and sleepy, but even if they fall asleep during their treatment, they can be easily awoken. Our team will take your child’s medical history, overall health, and their treatment into consideration when recommending dental sedatives, including oral sedation.
- General Anesthesia – The patient is put into a controlled state of unconsciousness. This option eliminates the patients’ awareness of their surroundings, as well as their ability to move. This safe and effective option is reserved for special situations for treatments that are performed on an outpatient basis at a nearby hospital.
