Sedation Dentistry | Emergency Dentist

For many people, just hearing the word “dentist”causes anxiety As a primarily pediatric practice, we aren’t just prepared for anxious patients, we expect them. Dr. Jones and her experienced assistants have dealt with butterflies in the tummy, full-fledged meltdowns, and everything in between. We find that the majority of children respond well to the  ”show, tell, do” approach. It simply means that we show the patient the unthreatening things we will use, such as the mirror, suction, etc. Tell the patient what to expect, always in gentle terms, (“we will tickle your tooth to get the sugarbug out”). Finally, we will do what has been discussed in the easiest possible way.Often parents are surprised when children willingly allow dental treatment using this method.

Unfortunately,there are some instances that the patient is too frightened, upset or strong willed to cooperate. For those patients, we offer the following:

Nitrousoxide/laughing gas-recommended for  most patients 3 years an up. It helps soothe nerves and creates a general sense of well-being. Nitrous works while patient is wearing and smelling the nasal hood only.  It doesn’t  work on a child that will not sit in chair and leave mask on nose.Wears off quickly when mask is removed.

In-office oral sedation (or nasal mist)- Versed, a sedative is given to patient on an empty stomach 15 minutes prior to procedure The benefits include heavier relaxation and less fighting, patient doesn’t remember the visit well, fast acting and safe with reversal. We can also refer patients to be put to sleep in a hospital environment for extensive treatment.

Papoose board-a wrap that restrains child from harming himself and allows treatment to be completed faster. Used alone or along with other methods.
