At the office of Turlock Children's Dentistry, your child’s comfort is a top priority with us. We pride ourselves on offering the latest, state-of-the art technology for the most effective pediatric dental treatments – all while keeping your child (and you!) at ease during the process. When the situation calls for it, we use safe and controlled sedation techniques to lessen your child’s fears while sitting in the dentist’s chair.
Adding to the complication of treating young patients is that they typically experience a degree of stranger anxiety, they have a short attention span, and a limited tolerance for keeping their mouth open. As a result, dental visits may be avoided, leaving them susceptible to pain, infections, loss of teeth and loss of space for future eruption of permanent teeth.
In these circumstances, anesthesia services are available for your child’s dental treatment. Sedation creates a feeling of calm and relaxation that lasts throughout the dental treatment and can make a lengthy procedure feel like it’s over in just minutes. A variety of sedation options can be used, depending on the type and complexity of the procedure. Our qualified and attentive dental team will carefully monitor your child throughout to ensure he or she is comfortable and unaware of the proceedings. This enables us to efficiently and safely complete the treatment in the shortest amount of time, and most children are ready to return home soon afterwards.
