About Pediatric Sleep Dentistry
Aiming to ensure every visit and procedure is pleasant, we provide top-tier pediatric sleep dentistry at the Toronto Kids Dental Clinic for children, adolescents, and teens. Sometimes, certain treatments in the dental chair might necessitate multiple appointments, which can be distressing for some children.
We aim to avoid such stress. Suppose a treatment requires noisy equipment or awkward positioning. In that case, we might jointly conclude that full sleep dentistry is the most favorable option for your child.
Dr. Noah Turk and his specialized team, including our resident anesthesiologist, offer pediatric sleep dentistry, optimizing their collaboration to ensure appropriate sedation levels. We continuously monitor your child’s vital signs during the process, striving for utmost precision and quality.
The FACTS About Dentistry While You Sleep
WHAT IS SLEEP DENTISTRY?
Sleep dentistry equates to general anesthesia but is tailored for dental treatments. It’s predominantly used in children’s dentistry to ensure a tranquil, hassle-free session. Intravenous medications (IV) facilitate full sleep dentistry. Our primary objective is to maintain your child’s unconscious state during the procedure. Our adept pediatric dental team keeps a watchful eye on crucial indicators like blood pressure, oxygen saturation, heart rhythm, and temperature from start until full recovery. This approach guarantees a calm, cozy experience devoid of any distressing memories for your child.
IS PEDIATRIC SLEEP DENTISTRY SAFE?
Absolutely. Pediatric sedation dentistry is safe when executed by a proficient pediatric dentist and a skilled medical anesthesiologist. We always evaluate your child’s medical background before scheduling any sedative dental treatment, which encompasses checking for potential allergies and current medications.
WHEN IS SLEEP DENTISTRY RECOMMENDED?
Pediatric sleep dentistry might be advised if your child:
- Needs extensive, long, or complex treatments;
- Experiences dental visit or procedure anxiety;
- Struggles to remain seated or has specific requirements;
- Is quite young;
- Possesses a heightened gag reflex.
