We recognize that some of our younger patients as well as those with special needs may not be able to comprehend and cooperate for necessary dental treatment. I.V. sedation is a recognized, accepted, and successful option for these patients to be able to receive dental care in one treatment appointment while asleep.
As a state certified sedation facility, Dr. Iten and Dr. Gregg can thoroughly return great oral health to your child's mouth while a state board-certified dental anesthesiologist monitors and delivers all necessary medication. A preliminary consultation with Dr. Iten or Dr. Gregg is followed by a secondary consultation with a dental anesthesiologist as well as your child's physician. A decision is then made as to whether or not your child is a good candidate for either in-office i.v. sedation or hospital setting.
Pediatric Dentistry has used the same anesthesia group for twenty years and we're happy to be able to provide this unique service for our younger age or medically compromised patients.
