Anesthesia in Pediatric Dentistry

Because children can become quite anxious at the dentist, most often they’ll be treated with nitrous oxide as an anesthetic, since it is inhaled and not a pill that has to be swallowed. Another benefit to nitrous oxide is the amount can be monitored and modified should any adjustments need to be made during the procedure – it’s just a simple knob that needs to be turned or the removal of the face mask. All the anesthesia a pediatric dentist gives children is safe, and the dentist will be sure to get a detailed history of allergies before administering any anesthesia or other medication.

What is a Pediatric Specialist?

A pediatric dentist has two or three years of study beyond that required in dental school, and because their practice is limited to children, they truly become specialists in their field.

You rest easy when you choose to take your little one to a pediatric dentist, as he or she has had special training in how to deal with children to make their oral exams less challenging.
