Pediatric Dentistry Asleep
Why go to sleep?
Going to sleep for treatment leaves children with no memory of their dental treatment being completed.
Extensive Treatment Needs
When multiple awake appointments are needed to complete treatment, going to sleep for treatment allows all required treatment to be done in one appointment.
Positive First Experience
Going to sleep for treatment leaves the patient open to future positive experiences in dentistry. The chances of a prolonged phobia of dentistry is greatly reduced.
Is it Safe?
Going to sleep for dentistry is safe. Research shows that the risk is extremely low with a complication rate of 1:1,000,000. Driving to the office appointment poses a greater risk than going to sleep for dentistry.
