Preparing for Sedation Dentistry
It is very important to make sure your child is in good overall health prior to the sedation to optimize treatment. Dr. Dina and her team will review all these instructions to keep your child safe throughout treatment.
Some children who require a significant amount of dental work, are severely anxious, have special health care needs, or are too small to cooperate with treatment in other manners might need general anesthesia in a hospital setting in order to have treatment completed safely and effectively. Dr. Dina has privileges at a number of community hospitals in order to be able to offer the safest treatment possible for your child with a board-certified Medical Anesthesiologist (M.D.) providing the anesthesia.
