Pain Free Dentistry For Children
It’s completely normal for a child to be unsure or nervous about their first dental visit, but at Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry, they don’t have to be! Our practice is designed to make your child comfortable and excited to visit the dentist. It is our goal to help your child have a positive, successful trip to our office. That’s why we offer pain free dentistry techniques, as well as sedation dentistry options, to help your child feel comfortable in the dental chair.
If your child has special needs, rest assured that Dr. Susan has significant experience helping children with a wide range of medical, developmental and behavioral conditions. We offer special needs dentistry in a supportive environment.
The Wand Pain-Free Injections
At Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry, we offer The Wand, a state-of-the-art digital platform for local anesthesia to our pediatric dental patients. This pain-free injection is more comfortable than a traditional syringe, reducing your child's pain and dental anxiety when they receive necessary dental treatments.
Icon “No Drill” Dental Fillings
If your child has a less advanced case of tooth decay, Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry offers ICON “No Drill” Fillings. These fillings are a more gentle option than traditional pediatric dental fillings. Your child won’t have a fear of the dental drill and won’t need to be put under anesthesia.
The ICON technique preserves more of the healthy structure of the infected tooth than a traditional dental drill typically does and can also be used to treat discoloration, giving your child a bright white, healthy smile.
Comforting Sedation Options
Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry is committed to ensuring your child gets the excellent pediatric dental care they deserve. That’s why we offer a variety of sedation dentistry options! Sedation dentistry can make your child feel less stressed, and enable Dr. Susan to accomplish the dental work they need more efficiently.
Our sedation options include:
- Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): A mild, very safe sedative administered through a soft mask to help your child “float” through their treatment.
- Oral Sedation: A fast-acting anti-anxiety pill that relaxes your child for a more peaceful treatment.
- IV Sedation: A higher level of sedation, safely administered in the comfort of our office by a pediatric dental anesthesiologist. IV Sedation is often recommended for completing complex procedures.
