Why Choose Dental Sedation for Children?

Posted by PDA Dentists on Oct 26 2021, 06:26 AM

Sedation dentistry uses mild sedatives to reduce your child’s anxiety while they receive dental care. It is also used when the dental treatment is more complex or requires several simultaneous procedures. 

At Progressive Dental in Ann Arbor, Michigan, our experienced dentists use sedation dentistry to relieve pain and discomfort in patients of all ages and are highly skilled at administering various forms of sedation.

What Is Sedation Dentistry for Children?

Our dentists use sedatives to help young patients overcome their dental anxieties and reduce the likelihood of experiencing pain or discomfort during a dental procedure. 

We determine the appropriate sedation solution based on the child’s medical history, the complexity of the treatment they require, and their level of anxiety.

Why Should You Consider Sedation Dentistry?

Dental anxiety can cause your child to fear the dentist and, therefore, prevent them from getting the dental treatments they need to maintain proper oral health. With the sedation dentistry options, we offer at Progressive Dental, you can be sure your child receives the treatment they require without experiencing any discomfort. 

Here are a few significant reasons to consider sedation dentistry for children:

It Allows Your Child to Receive the Dental Care They Require

The primary benefit of sedation dentistry is that it allows your child to get the dental care they need without experiencing discomfort or anxiety.

It Is Risk-Free

At Progressive Dental, we use sedation options that are safe for children and have extensive experience in administering dental sedation. Your child will be relaxed and still aware and able to respond to the dentist's commands.

It Prevents Children From Developing Dental Phobias 

When you bring your child in for a dental checkup, cavity treatment, or other dental work, we can use dental sedation to create a positive experience for them and show them that dental visits don’t have to be unpleasant.

What to Expect From Sedation Dentistry at Progressive Dental?

  • The first step is to book an appointment with Dr. Hall at Progressive Dental. 
  • During the appointment, Dr. Hall will perform a thorough examination and note the child's weight, medical history, and vital signs. Based on this data, we can determine the kind of sedation to be used.
  • There are two options for sedatives. One is a single dose that acts slowly and lasts throughout the treatment, and the other is continual dosage throughout the procedure.
  • Your kid may become drowsy after the procedure but will recover soon.
  • For safety, we will monitor your child's temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, and blood oxygen levels throughout the procedure.
