Dentist in Greensboro, NC Providing a Safe Experience for Children Needing Sedation Dentistry

Many children are afraid of the dentist. It is a fact that is old as time. This is especially true for children who have had a scary experience early in life. Whatever the reason may be, dental fear and anxiety in children are very real. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry in Greensboro, NC want to ease this fear for children who come in for a dental appointment. Dr. Isharani employs various sedation techniques that help ease this fear.

When a child is brought into the dentist with dental pain or an infection of the tooth and/or gums, some treatments will require sedation to make sure the child is comfortable throughout while the dental procedure is being performed. There are many reasons for sedation including:

  • A child who faces dental fear and/or anxiety that needs to be at ease
  • The dentist needs the child to be completely still during the procedure
  • There may be a significant amount of work that needs to be performed which will take time

Whatever the reason for the sedation, the goal is to provide an experience that is comfortable, safe, and pain-free for the child.

Is Anesthesia or Sedation Safe for Children Undergoing Dental Procedures?

Dental professionals realize that putting a child under sedation or anesthesia, no matter how deeply, can be incredibly concerning for parents. This is why guidelines for performing such work is constantly undergoing revisions and updates to make it as safe as possible. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) both updated these guidelines as recently as 2019. These guidelines are strictly adhered to by dentists and oral surgeons who provide deep sedation and general anesthesia for children. These guidelines dictate that there are always (at the very least) 2 trained professionals in the room when children are under. One of these people in the room will always be the dentist or oral surgeon performing the procedure. This makes the process entirely safe for children.

Success Story

Sona J. Isharani, DDS
Rating : 5 5 Stars
Erika K.

My 5 year old had about 12 cavities and needed a ton of work, but since she was so anxious and apprehensive we had to put her under anesthesia to do all of the work. Dr Sona and her staff made the process so easy. My daughter went to sleep after blowing up a balloon and never knew about the IV or tubes associated with the anesthesia. I would recommend her for children who are apprehensive about the dentist.
