Dr. Giri Palani of Total Smile Care Caters to His Younger Patients With Sedation Dentistry for Children
Although there have been great strides in pediatric dental care, the experience of visiting the dentist can vary greatly from one child to another. All kids need to have their teeth expertly cared for, but some kids aren’t always courageous about it. It’s understandable, and it’s why Dr. Palani provides sedation dentistry for children as his Rancho Palos Verdes, CA practice.
Dental procedures can be traumatic for some kids, even if the procedures are inherently painless and quick. Sometimes new experiences, the sights and sounds of unfamiliar instruments, and strange sensations are, in and of themselves, all it takes to make an office visit an unpleasant memory. These are memories kids carry into adulthood and could evolve into an irrational yet very real phobia of the dentist. Making a dental visit pleasant and pain free during your child’s impressionable years can be the difference between them responsibly seeking dental care as they get older and detrimentally neglecting periodontal health as an adult. Taking this into careful consideration and exercising a commitment to providing patients with optimal dentistry practices, Dr. Giri Palaini helps his younger patients get through a visit with the use of dental procedure sedation for children.
Non-invasive and completely safe, sedation for children is usually administered through the inhalation of nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. This method of sedation enables the child to experience no pain or discomfort during the procedure, and to quickly immerge from the relaxed state once the procedure is through. Kids will usually be fine to return to school on the same day and experience no side effects from the sedation. It takes a great deal of stress off both kids and parents who may be apprehensive about pediatric dental procedures.
