PEDIATRIC PATIENTS

Pediatric Patients

Our practice is primarily devoted to the safe and comprehensive treatment of children, including those with special needs, who require dental or oral surgical treatment with anesthesia services.

Our mission is to provide your child anesthesia services with the highest standard of patient care and safety. These services can be administered in the comfort, convenience and familiar surroundings of the office of your child’s dentist or surgeon.

 

Even the skilled pediatric dentist will occasionally have limited success completing dental treatment for a fearful or pre-cooperative child as well as a child with special needs. Younger children typically experience a degree of stranger anxiety, a short attention span, and a limited tolerance for keeping their mouth open. The complexity and magnitude of needed dental treatment may also reduce the success of behavior strategies the pediatric dentist may utilize. Subsequent delays in receiving proper dental care can lead to oral pain, infections, loss of teeth and loss of space for future eruption of permanent teeth. 

Anesthetic medications can allow your child to “sleep” through the most comprehensive procedure in a safe, controlled, and monitored setting. Each child receives an individually prepared and titrated anesthetic with close and continuous monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, oxygenation, temperature, and patient awareness.  A qualified anesthesiologist who uses medications and monitors equal to those currently used in hospitals will provide their care. Children remain asleep with profound pain control throughout their dental treatment. This enables the treating dentist or surgeon to efficiently and safely complete all planned treatment in the shortest amount of time and in one session rather than multiple sessions. Children report no memory of receiving their dental or surgical care.

Whether your pediatric dentist, general dentist, dental specialist, or surgeon has recommended our anesthesia services or you are considering these services independently we hope this information is useful and can be available to answer additional questions by telephone or email.
