Children who are very young, have a large amount of dental caries, have a high level of anxiety or special needs children may require IV Sedation. Deep sedation is sometimes necessary for children that are unable, by either age or maturity level, to cooperate during dental treatment. Our practice utilizes a certified anesthesiologist for cases where the patient may pose a threat to their own safety during treatment.
Sedation Dentistry is most helpful for:
- Children who require major treatment
- The very anxious child
- Children that have had traumatic dental experiences (sound and smell aversion)
- Children with a strong gag reflex
- Children who are medically compromised or have special needs
Dr. Speed has worked very closely with Dr. Jeffery Fisher DDS for more than 10 years, providing a comfortable and convenient in office IV Sedation experience for patients and their families.
