Child Management

Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Sedation

Some children are given nitrous oxide/oxygen to relax them for their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide.

Behaviour Guidance

A pediatric dentist's average day in the office includes a number of encounters with children who are initially not cooperative. Sometimes this uncooperative behavior is a result of a child being anxious in a new and foreign environment.

Calming the Anxious Child

Pediatric dentists have special training in helping anxious children feel secure during dental treatment. And, pediatric dental offices are designed for children.

Dental Treatment under General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is a controlled state of unconsciousness that eliminates awareness, movement and discomfort during dental treatment.
