For many young patients, going to the dentist can be daunting. For this reason, we work incredibly hard to develop trust with our patients and rely on advanced technology to ensure their restorative treatments are comfortable and natural-looking. Sedation is a technique to guide a child’s behavior during dental treatment. Medications are used to help increase cooperation and to reduce anxiety or discomfort associated with dental procedures. Sedative medications cause most children to become relaxed and drowsy. Unlike general anesthesia, sedation is not intended to make a patient unconscious or unresponsive.
If the word "surgery" when it comes to your child causes anxiety in you, don't worry. At Spring & Sprout Pediatric Dentistry, the goal is to reduce anxiety with a gentle touch, an empathetic demeanor, and advanced training in sedation anesthesia. We are committed to giving our patients the most comfortable, professional and timely experience possible. Our dental surgery specialists provide everything from routine treatments like teeth extractions to more complicated soft tissue surgical procedures. There are few dentists more qualified to expertly handle your child’s surgical needs than those of Spring & Sprout Pediatric Dentistry. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child goes to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age. Our team is ready to create the best dental experience possible for your children.
