The Nervous Patient
For those children who have significant dental anxieties due to traumatic past experiences or sensory issues, we attempt to ease them back into being comfortable with dental treatment by behavioral modification techniques. In instances where their anxieties require extra intervention, we offer dental treatment with nitrous oxide(laughing gas). Using nitrous oxide is a way of relaxing your child during treatment without sedating them. For the patient whose dental fears or medical complexities warrant treatment under sedation, we team up with a dental anesthesiologist to provide the necessary treatment.
