We always have a consultation appointment with children to determine their eligibility for safe anaesthesia treatment and to determine their dental needs to ensure they are receiving the proper treatment. Once we assess their oral health we can begin looking at management options, which most often is deep sedation. However, since every child is unique and requires different levels of care, we will determine the best plan for your child during the consultation.
Consultations are key for children’s sedation dentistry
The consultation also allows us to explain the entire treatment plan to parents. We want to make sure you are completely aware of and on board with your child’s dental plan. We will also take the time to review diet and oral hygiene strategies to prevent future cavities.
We're here to help your child grow strong teeth for life!
A big concern is Early Childhood Caries (also known as baby bottle tooth decay or nursing caries). Children risk severe decay from using a bottle at nap or bed time, or when they nurse continuously from the breast.
