Understandably, children have multiple reasons to be anxious about dental treatment. Some reasons include:

  • Previous attempted appointments
  • Genetics
  • Age
  • 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. This procedure is covered by most medical insurance companies. An anesthesiologist administers a general anesthesia and the child’s dental work is done while he or she is asleep. This is a day surgery treatment done at a hospital.
