When Sedation Services are Helpful
Using drugs is a last resort. Sensitive, gentle care is the most effective approach to providing dental care for young children. Treatment timing and building the child’s confidence usually is all that is needed. Our experienced team successfully works with most children in this way on a daily basis.
Challenges vary by age, personality and the kind of treatment required. Rarely it is necessary to use drugs. But when it is used it is very helpful. It can be the kindest way to help a child.
We always try to please you. You may decide you want your child sedated because you know him or her the best. You may have had a bad dental experience yourself and want to make every effort to avoid that for your child. Your direction in your child’s dental care is greatly valued. We are here to advise you and give you the benefit of our experience.
