Will My Child Feel Any Pain?
None of us want our child to feel discomfort when it comes to her oral care. Denali Pediatric Dentistry uses gentle care techniques that help keep your child pain-free throughout her dental care, no matter what her comfort needs happen to be.
Some of the ways we do this is by using:
Topical and Local Anesthesia – Getting your child’s mouth numb with
topical gel helps make treatment a breeze. Gentle local anesthesia delivery keeps the teeth numb, to prevent any sensitivity during treatment.
Nitrous Oxide – Laughing gas is one of the best ways to put your child in a good, relaxed mood. Most of them have no idea that we’re even working on the tooth.
Even standard visits like cleanings and X-Rays can be uncomfortable for some people. Our staff is trained to use specific types of methods, equipment and distraction techniques to keep your child’s mind off of what’s actually going on. That way she’ll enjoy her entire time with us and not experience any pain.
It’s not uncommon for children to get up out of the chair and not even realize that they’ve had a shot or treatment completed on their tooth! In fact, we see it quite often.
If you’ve put off dental care because your child is anxious or fearful, please know that this will only result in the need for additional dental treatment later on. Denali Pediatric Dentistry can help your child have a healthier smile in the most comfortable way possible.
