Sleep Dentistry, we treat the young patients you have difficulty
WHY CHILDREN'S’ SLEEP DENTISTRY?
After many years of practicing dentistry,
I found that working on children was very difficult. From being
generally uncooperative, medically compromised, or simply unable
to sit still for extensive treatment restorations, the trauma
of extensive treatment causes stress for the parents, the child,
the dental staff, and me! For this reason, I decided to create
a practice dedicated to treating children while they sleep.
At Children’s Sleep Dentistry, we treat kids who need dental
work using various methods of sedation. For minor treatments,
we often use an oral sedative. For extensive treatments, a general
anesthetic is provided. We see children for various reasons such
as uncooperative behavior, developmental disabilities, gagging,
fear, and extensive treatment needs.
Treatment can often be completed in one appointment after a consultation.
Appointment length typically falls between 30 minutes and 2 hours
depending on the case. After treatment is completed, the patient
can return to your office for future care if preferred. If you
have any questions regarding a patient, please do not hesitate
to call us any time to discuss their case.
Fees are discussed with parents or guardians prior to the treatment
day. Often it is difficult to give an entirely accurate estimate
but we endeavour to give as close an estimate as possible prior
to the treatment date.
at our office have all completed graduate programs in Dental
Anesthesia. They are PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support)
certified and the office facilities are regularly checked
by the RCDSO. We also employ experienced nurses who have worked
at pediatric hospitals for many years.
Our doctors lecture about various topics or teach at the university
(refer to this website for seminar dates). For further information,
please call us any time. Home numbers are provided for your
convenience for after-hours emergencies or questions.
