There is no getting around the fact that some dental care can be uncomfortable. Sometimes, treating young children or those with severe dental issues is too difficult or even unsafe to do with typical methods. Whether it’s due to anxiety, behavioral issues, or just a large amount of dental work needing to be completed, sedation dentistry can be of great benefit. For children and teenagers who would otherwise be anxious and fearful during dental treatment, IV sedation can make it possible for your child to have a dental experience that's free of anxiety and pain with the help of our pediatric dental group partner, Pediatric Dental Anesthesia Associates. These sedation appointments have their own separate pre-procedure instructions and we will discuss these with you in detail if it is appropriate for your child.
