Sedation and Pediatric Dentistry

At Northwest Children’s Dentistry, we pride ourselves on emphasizing prevention and good dental hygiene.  Having good dental habits will go a long ways to avoid any procedures at our office.  But even the most vigilant parent will sometimes have a child who needs a dental treatment.

In many cases, sedation is not needed for dental procedures.  However, if your child has a high need for a procedure and has trouble sitting still, has low pain tolerance, has special needs, or depending on the treatment, we may recommend sedation.  Sedation dentistry is safe and endorsed by the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
