Why You Should Consider Sedation Dentistry For Children

Jul 5, 2008
If you have a child who is afraid of the dentist, you should consider sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry puts your child in a sleep like state where they do not have fears or pain. This is not like being totally under anesthesia and can be performed right in the office of the dentist.

Some children are better candidates for sedation dentistry than others. Examples of the best candidates for sedation dentistry are as follows:

Those children who are having a lot of work done

If your child is having a lot of work done, such a three teeth pulled, they are an excellent candidate for sedation dentistry. Not only can a lot of work be nerve wracking, but it can also be painful as well. And sitting in that chair, no matter how comfortable, can also be unsettling for a child. If your child is getting a lot of work done on one visit to the dentist, consider sedation dentistry.

Those who are getting difficult work done

If your child is getting his or her wisdom teeth pulled, this is the time you want to choose sedation dentistry. You may also want to be sedated if you are having root canal. This is because these procedures can be painful so you are better off to get them done while you are under sedation. Difficult to one person may not mean the same as to another, but if the procedure is going to be too traumatic to endure, you should request sedation dentistry for your child.

Past trauma or fear of dentists

Many children are afraid of dentists? If your child is afraid of dentists, consider having their teeth worked on under sedation dentistry. Many people admit to being afraid of dentists - this is nothing to be ashamed of. If you have a child who has a fear of dentists because of past trauma or simply a bad experience, tell your dentist so that he can perform the word under sedation.

Sensitive teeth

Many childen have sensitive teeth and gums. This can make any dental application difficult. If your child has sensitive teeth and gums, or have general mouth pain, you should talk to the dentist about sedation dentistry. This will make their trip to the dentist a lot more comfortable.

If the alternate to getting sedation dentistry is not going to the dentist or terrorizing your child, you should request sedation dentistry. You only get one set of teeth so it is best to take care of them. If you have a child who is afraid of the dentist or feel that they would be more comfortable under sedation, talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry.
