Understandably, children have multiple reasons to be anxious about dental treatment. Some reasons include the following:
- Previous attempted appointments
- The fear of the unknown!
At Madison Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics, Dr. Grace Wenham, Dr. Beth Blair, Dr. Nika Lustgarten, and their staff are committed to making your child's appointment go as smoothly as possible. We offer the following types of sedation, which can be used alone or in combination:
- Mild Sedation (Nitrous oxide)
- Medium Sedation, including:
- Midazolam (Versed)
- Hydroxyzine (Vistaril)
Outpatient Dental Rehabilitation
Dr. Grace Wenham, Dr. Beth Blair, and Dr. Nika Lustgarten also offer hospital dental rehabilitation. This is for children that need extensive dental work and their anxiety levels are too high for oral sedation to work appropriately and safely. Most medical insurance companies cover this procedure. An anesthesiologist administers general anesthesia, and the child's dental work is done while asleep. This is a day surgery treatment done at a hospital.
