Sedation & Anesthesia For Kids
Young children with dental pain or an infection can require treatment at any age. That means sometimes your child may need to go under general anesthesia or sedation.
Reasons A Child May Undergo Anesthesia or Sedation:
- Some dental procedures require your child to lie completely still
- There may be a lot to fix and it is much more comfortable and easier to have the child be under.
- The noise of the drill may be scary.
Are Dental Procedures Involving Sedation and Anesthesia safe?
The goal is always to provide the safest, most pain-free treatment. The guidelines for using general anesthesia and sedation are consistently updated to make sure the latest techniques are used in dentist offices who strive to be as safe as possible, such as ourselves.
