Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Plano
Making Your Child Comfortable During Treatment
The first step once we have seen your child and built a dental treatment plan for them is to sit down and discuss it with you. If we will be doing any type of surgery, we will need to discuss the sedation options which we offer. Our Plano pediatric sedation dentist takes into consideration a wide range of factors, including the type of treatment they will be having, their history, and their age. If you have specific concerns or desires, such as for a specific type of dental sedation, we can take this into account.
Types of Dental Sedation for Your Child
For the most part, sedation dentistry is used to treat people who will be undergoing surgery or treatment that involves a significant amount of pain. However, it can also be used to treat young children who are nervous or uneasy about their upcoming dental care. We strive to provide young patients with a relaxed and caring environment in which our board-certified pediatric dentist can accomplish the necessary treatment plan.
Our sedation dentistry options may include:
- Local anesthetics
- Laughing gas/nitrous oxide
- Conscious sedation
- General anesthesia
Is Dental Sedation Safe for Your Child?
Sedation can be safe for your child during a dental appointment when administered by a qualified and experienced pediatric dentist. Prior to the procedure, our Plano pediatric dentist will assess your child's medical history and tailor the sedation approach accordingly. They will monitor your child's vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure their safety. Informed consent will be obtained from parents or guardians before administering any sedation. With proper evaluation, precautions, and a skilled dental team, sedation can provide a safe and comfortable dental experience for your child.
