Are you worried about how your child will feel during their dental appointment? You don't have to be. We offer Sedation Dentistry to patients in our Princeton, NJ dental office. Sedation can help children relax and get through their necessary dental care.
At Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry, your child's needs always come first.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Does your child have unique healthcare needs that make dental appointments difficult? Are they in need of a lengthy or invasive treatment? If so, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry is here for you and your child.
We regularly offer sedation dentistry services to patients who typically require dental work done in a hospital setting. Dr. Gordon Barnes administers safe sedation to patients right here in our Princeton, NJ dental office so that your child can get the relaxing care they deserve in an environment they know and trust.
A Safe and Effective Option
Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry considers our patients' complete medical histories and available dental solutions when developing treatment plans. Our team will partner with you to ensure that your child is provided with the safest, most effective treatment.
Pediatric sedation dentistry can help for any treatment or patient. We bring Dr. Gordon Barnes into our office to administer IV sedation for more complex cases involving extensive therapies or challenging medical/behavioral needs. Dr. Barnes is a board-certified dental anesthesiologist. He is a Diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology. He also holds memberships in the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists and the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia, so you can rest assured that your child is in good hands.
By providing Dr. Barnes' services to our patients, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry is helping to ensure that your child's IV sedation is as safe and comfortable as possible.
Although some dentists perform both the sedation and treatment at once, Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry wants what's best for your child - and for us, that means having an expert focused on monitoring sedation while our specialist dentists are focused on your child's smile.
Safe Sedation Right in Our Princeton, New Jersey Dental Office
Remember, your child will NOT have to visit a hospital to get the dental care they need. Instead, they will receive their treatment from the dental office they know and trust.
Is My Child Awake During Sedation Dentistry?
When most people think of dental surgery, they picture a patient lying in a dentist's chair, wide awake and conscious of every sound and movement. However, this is not always the case.
There are various levels of sedation, from light sedation, which simply makes the patient drowsy, to general anesthesia, which renders the patient unconscious. The type of sedation used will depend on the procedure being performed and the patient's individual needs.
While it is essential to discuss your options with Dr. Christina Ciano, Dr. Geena Russo, or Dr. Dinah Jammal beforehand, you can rest assured that your child will be well-cared for and monitored throughout the entire procedure.
