PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Pediatric Dentistry

Can you imagine what it would have been like if, as a child, you had an alternative to the dental drill?!!! You probably would not have such anxiety about dental visits!

Laser Pediatric Dentistry

The best thing about laser dentistry by Waterlase is that kids love it and this will reduce their initial fear of dentists. Furthermore the potential for injury sometimes caused by needles and drills in the mouths of wriggling and struggling kids has been eliminated.

In addition, Ferrari Dental clinic’s pediatric dentist is highly-trained in the management of the anxious child through modern behavioral techniques.

The extremely anxious child can also be managed using oral sedative, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or dental treatment under general anesthesia.

Conscious Sedation

Pediatric Dentistry

Sedation may be indicated for children who have a level of anxiety, fear, and phobia hat prevents good coping skills, those who are very young and do not understand how to cope in a cooperative fashion, or those requiring extensive den Sedation is used for a child’s safety and comfort during dental procedures. It allows the child to cope better with dental treatment and helps prevent injury to the child from uncontrolled or undesirable movements.

NITROUS OXIDE INHALATIONAL SEDATION AVAILABLE AT FERRARI DENTAL CLINIC REPRESENTS THE MOST IDEAL SEDATION TECHNIQUE.

General Anesthesia

Often, treatment is first attempted in an office setting with or without sedative medications but, when a child (or a person of any age) needs extensive dental treatment; general anesthesia is an accepted standard of care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the American Medical Association, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services support this standard. General anesthesia is also an accepted standard of care for situations involving children who have limited comprehension or children who are extremely uncooperative and require dental care that is technically difficult or sensitive to deliver.
