Minimal Sedation in Pediatric Dentistry

We strive to provide a comfortable experience for your children so that they may view future dental visits with a positive attitude.

Aiming to provide exceptional care by staying up-to-date on the most current scientific literature, utilizing the best biomaterials available on the market, and following the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s (AAPD) Oral Health Policies and Clinical Guidelines, we can’t wait to work with your family on the best approach.

Certain pediatric patients may need preventive medication who experience stress in dental situations. Typically, minimal sedation uses medications such in those situations. These medications can help place the child in a receptive state of mind, enhancing communication, cooperation, and tolerance for longer appointments. Minimal sedation can also reduce anxiety, gagging, and fear of needles, as well as raise the pain threshold, aiding in the treatment of mentally, medically, or physically disabled patients.

Conservative, Honest Care

Our goal is to present parents with the most conservative and minimally invasive treatment options. Not all dental caries are created equal, and therefore not all dental caries require immediate treatment. We always take into consideration the age of the patient and the severity of the cavities. We factor in the financial cost of dental procedures while striving to avoid unnecessary treatment and ensuring that the child will be free of disease, pain, and infection.
