General anesthesia for your child’s hospital visit
If your child requires extensive oral surgery after an accident or to correct an infection they may need to undergo general anesthesia. General anesthesia is safe, effective, and your child will have no memory or discomfort from the procedure. During the procedure, they will feel as if they were in a deep, dreamless sleep.
Tooth Town Dentistry for Kids’ goal provides general anesthesia or hospital sedation to help your child comfortable. Depending on the length and the complexity of the surgery, your child may experience swelling. We will provide a complete after-care program to minimize pain and facilitate healing.
Minimize surgery chances through routine care
The best way to prevent surgery is by keeping up to date with your child’s regular exams and cleanings. During these exams, we will do a complete examination to look for potential trouble spots. If we discover one, we will do everything we can to correct it. We’ll also provide you with the best recommendations for your child to do at home to prevent problem areas from growing worse.
You can help your child by encouraging them to brush and floss regularly and keep your regular dental appointments so that they learn that the dentist is nothing to fear.
Complete sedation options:
General anesthesia is often used for the most serious of dental conditions – such as removing multiple impacted wisdom teeth as an example. For less serious conditions Toothtown Dentistry for kids offers a variety of comfortable sedation techniques such as nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and other in-office sedation techniques.
We will always provide you options in a clear, compassionate matter when your child requires any type of procedure that would require sedation so that you have all the information. If you have any questions about our general anesthetic or sedation techniques, call our office today!
