Hospital Sedation Dentistry Statesville NC 28677

A painless experience

General anesthesia is only used when your child needs to undergo oral surgery. General anesthesia is proven to be completely safe for young children and is only recommended when the procedure requires more advanced dental care than what can be done in the office.

Iredell Pediatric Dentistry provides general anesthesia or hospital sedation to help keep your child comfortable through the procedure. They will feel as if they are in a deep, dreamless sleep and they will have no memory of the procedure.

Every procedure is unique and depending on the complexity of the surgery, your child may experience swelling and require additional post-op care. Pain relievers may be prescribed to control pain after the surgery.

Prevent surgery with routine care

The most common reason for oral surgery is either from dental neglect or ignoring lingering problems. However, surgery can be avoided by adhering to a consistent hygiene regimen and staying up to date with routine exams. Regular exams allow us to spot potential trouble spots and offer alleviation techniques before they develop into complications.

Other common dental problems can occur if teeth grow crooked or misaligned. This can lead to other problems such as overbites, underbites, teeth grinding, and impacted teeth.

The most valuable resource a child has to keep their teeth clean and healthy is you. You can lead by example, by not only brushing with your children but also scheduling your appointments with your kids so they can see that visiting the dentist is nothing to fear. Don’t delay–schedule your appointment with Iredell Pediatric Dentistry by calling 704-397-4000.

Complete sedation options

General anesthesia is used for the most serious of dental conditions – such as removing multiple impacted wisdom teeth as an example. For less serious conditions Iredell Pediatric Dentistry offers a variety of comfortable sedation techniques such as nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and other in-office sedation techniques that are comfortable and safe.

Our goal is to provide you with your options so you can make the best decisions for your children. If you have any questions about our general anesthetic or sedation techniques, call our office today!
