Safe, pain-free dental care
In rare instances for dental emergencies or when multiple teeth are impacted, it might be necessary to use general anesthesia. General anesthesia is completely safe for young children and is only recommended when surgery is required.
Mount Airy Pediatric Dentistry provides hospital and general anesthesia to keep your child comfortable and give him/her a pain-free experience during the procedure. They will have no memory of the procedure and it will be as if they were in a deep dreamless sleep. Depending on the procedure some aftercare may be required to reduce swelling and minimize pain when your child returns home.
Complete sedation dentistry
At Mount Airy Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to provide complete pain-free dental care when your child visits. We offer topical and minimal sedation options during their procedure. We also provide nitrous oxide options when they are appropriate.
Regardless of the procedure. Your child will be in the best of care and comfort when they visit our office. Your child is your most important gift and our most important client of the day. You can place your trust in us. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
Routine care is key for preventing surgery
While dental surgery cannot ever be completely ruled out – a lot of the risk can be minimized by adhering to regular checkups and keeping up to date with regular brushings and cleanings. Long gaps in dental visits to your dentist at Mount Airy Pediatric Dentistry increases the chance that a dental issue will go undetected potentially involving surgery to correct it.
Do not neglect regular cleanings. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
