Understanding Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry involves using medication to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during dental procedures. It is particularly beneficial for children who experience dental anxiety, have special needs, or require extensive dental treatment. At Buckeye Pediatric Dentistry, we offer various sedation options, including general anesthesia, to ensure that your child receives the care they need in a calm and relaxed state.

Dental Fear

vs. Dental Anxiety

Understanding the difference between dental fear and dental anxiety is crucial for helping your children feel comfortable and relaxed before their dental visit. Dental fear often stems from a specific traumatic experience or fear of pain associated with dental treatment. On the other hand, dental anxiety is more generalized and may arise from a fear of the unknown, anticipation of discomfort, or concerns about loss of control. We recognize that every child is unique and take the time to understand their fears and concerns. By addressing their fears and providing reassurance every step of the way, we strive to make your child’s dental experience positive.

General Anesthesia in a Comfortable Hospital Setting

General anesthesia is a form of sedation that induces a state of deep sleep, allowing patients to undergo dental procedures without feeling any pain or discomfort. At Buckeye Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that the thought of general anesthesia can be intimidating for both children and parents. That’s why we go above and beyond to create a comfortable and reassuring atmosphere for our patients.

Our team works closely with experienced anesthesiologists to ensure that general anesthesia is administered safely and effectively. We take the time to explain the process in detail and address any questions or concerns you may have. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Lucia and Dr. Marlina monitor your child’s vital signs and well-being to ensure a smooth and successful outcome.

What are the

Benefits of General Anesthesia in Dentistry?

General anesthesia offers several benefits for children undergoing dental treatment, including:

Pain-Free Experience:

General anesthesia ensures that your child remains completely unaware and pain-free throughout the dental procedure.

Youthful Appearance:

For children who experience dental anxiety or fear, general anesthesia provides a sense of calmness and relaxation, allowing them to undergo treatment without stress or apprehension.

Improved Treatment Outcomes:

General anesthesia allows dentists to perform complex or lengthy dental procedures more efficiently and effectively, leading to better treatment outcomes and oral health results.

General anesthesia is particularly beneficial for children with special needs or medical conditions that may make it difficult to tolerate dental treatment in a traditional setting.
