Many children find it difficult to cope with routine dental care either due to their age, their previous dental or medical experiences or the complexity of their treatment needs. For this reason, Dr Wong or Dr Bell may recommend that your child has their dental treamtent completed under sedation or general anaesthesia.
Our practice has the ability to provide treatment under Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Happy Gas), Intravenous Sedation or General Anaesthesia. Following a complete review of your child's medical history and dental condition the specialist paediatric dentist may recommend the use of some type of sedation to facilitate your child's treatment.
It is important to understand that not all types of sedation are suitable for all patients or conditions. Our primary aim is to provide high quality dental care in a safe environment that will facilitate future acceptance of dental care.
