Dental treatment under Intravenous Sedation (IV) is recommended for very young children, extremely apprehensive children who require much dental treatment, and children with special needs that would not respond well to other sedation options. IV sedation offers comprehensive treatment in a timely manner for these children and helps them to maintain a positive attitude towards taking care of their teeth. Your child will be “asleep” while the dentist is able to complete all of the necessary dental procedures in one visit.
Your child’s safety is our utmost priority--no sedation is recommended lightly, unless it is deemed absolutely necessary and the benefits significantly outweigh the risk. Dr. Joyce and her team work with a highly-trained and board-certified pediatric medical anesthesiologist group
to safely treat, monitor, and care for your child in our office. This also avoids multiple appointments since all the dental treatment is complete in one visit, and parents have the comfort of being in a relaxed setting.For additional information about our board-certified pediatric medical anesthesiologists, Children’s Dental Anesthesiologist Group, please visit: https://www.cdanesthesia.com/home
