While we do our best to create positive associations with the dentist from a young age, many children still have difficulty remaining calm during a visit to the dentist. Whether your child has had negative past experiences with the dentist or has special needs that require some extra attention, we can help. At Hines Little Smiles, we believe every child deserves a healthy smile, and we offer sedation dentistry to help children get the care they need.
We can administer different kinds of sedation depending on your child’s specific needs. All methods of sedation we use are recognized by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as safe and effective. Depending on your child’s unique circumstances, we may recommend:
Prior to your child’s treatment, we will give you detailed information about the type of sedation your child will receive, so you will know what to expect. We will also give you instructions to follow before and after your child receives sedation. We encourage you to talk with your child about his or her experience and level of fear, and our staff is always available to offer guidance.
