If you’ve been putting your child’s dentist visit off for too long because of their fear or anxiety, then sedation dentistry may be the answer. Your child’s oral health is so important and affects their overall health, so they must visit the dentist twice a year or as needed for maintenance and dental work.

Sedation dentistry options for children at Magnolia Kid Friendly DentalLearn more about us include minimal and moderate sedation. The process isn’t complicated, and we administer nitrous oxide sedation, oral conscious sedation, or a combination depending on your child’s needs.

  • Step 1

    Before treatment, we’ll discuss medical history, allergies, and medications to ensure that sedation dentistry is safe for your child. Then we’ll determine the type needed for the anxiety level and procedure.

  • Step 2

    Our experienced team gives your child the best sedation option for their specific needs.

  • Step 3

    We proceed with the dentist visit while your child feels at ease. Along with the sedation medicine, our dentist may use a local anesthetic to ensure the area is numb and doesn’t cause any discomfort.

Avoiding the dentist can cost your family more money, time, and stress in the long run. An untreated dental problem can become a big issue if ignored. Let us help maintain or fix your child’s teeth and gums while promoting a positive experience with sedation dentistry in Mitchellville, MD.
