Emergency Dentistry

From a toothache to trauma we can evaluate or treat your emergency the same day.

Because children are still growing, their dental needs differ from adults. Pediatric dentistry is the field of dental medicine that specializes in the dental health of children, from infants to teenagers. Pediatric dentists have the same qualifications as traditional dentists, but have also studied pediatric techniques, and ways to reduce the trauma of dentistry for children.

Sedation
A child with high anxiety may benefit from sedation during dental procedures. Sedatives are used to help reduce a child's anxiety, relax him and increase his willingness to cooperate. Sedation makes a child drowsy, but is not intended to make him unconscious or unresponsive. Even when anxiety is not present, sedation may assist a child who requires extensive treatment to stay still and resist fidgeting.
