Many parents wonder why their child might need anesthesia for a dental procedure. The fear of pain, the sound of drilling, and separation from parents make many children anxious when they go to a dentist’s office. Dentists often use nitrous oxide or moderately sedating drinks to ease children’s worries and to make them cooperate. Despite this, some children still will not tolerate any dental procedures. We provide a state-of-the-art surgery center setting complete with hospital quality anesthesia and monitoring to ensure the comfort and safety of your child.
Our office will contact you before your scheduled dental procedure to learn about your child. At the time of the dental appointment, the parent usually carries the child to the procedure area. The child sits in the parent’s lap and goes to sleep by taking a few breaths of a flavored mask while the anesthesiologist tells them a simple story or sings them a song. After the child is asleep, additional monitoring equipment is added and a child-sized I.V. line is started. The anesthesia is deepened to the regulated level.
