Some of our patients come to us with severe dental needs that require a more comprehensive care approach than a traditional dental visit. Our operating room dentistry services are designed with these children in mind.
We suggest this type of care when caring for patients with needs such as:
- Extensive decay and restorative needs
- Multiple extractions
- Large treatment cases that need to be completed at once
- Severe anxiety surrounding dental care
IV Sedation for Ultimate Comfort
Operating room dentistry uses IV sedation that is delivered by a licensed anesthesiologist. This allows your child to experience the deepest level of sedation in the safest environment.
All Treatments in One Visit
Regardless of how extensive your child’s dental needs are, the flexibility that operating room dentistry provides will allow our dentists to complete all of the treatment in one visit. Your child will be extremely comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Since the sedatives also serve as an amnesiac, most children will not remember much (if anything) about their trip to the hospital.
Denali Pediatric Dentistry has special arrangements with area hospitals, allowing us to utilize their services and have access to specialists like anesthesiologists and personnel. If you think operating room dentistry might be what your child needs, please speak to one of our treatment coordinators. Ask about all our dental services including preventative dentistry.
