Our pediatric dentist may recommend hospital dentistry when a patient’s oral health needs require the use of general anesthesia to receive treatment without complication. We work closely with hospital staff and specialists to ensure patients are fully comfortable and every precaution is taken.
There are several benefits to hospital dentistry, including:
Children who have extreme difficulty receiving care in the dental office and individuals with special needs are excellent candidates for hospital dentistry. We may also recommend hospital dentistry for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions that make a hospital the best facility in which to receive treatment. Recommendations for treatments and hospital dentistry are based on our findings during exams and on patients’ experiences and behavior while in our office. Hospital dentistry is recommended only when necessary, and you as the parent will be provided with all possible options first.
If you have any questions or concerns about hospital dentistry, please contact our office. We want to you to be fully informed and prepared for your child’s treatment. Please give us a call today to schedule a consultation and learn more about hospital dentistry. We are here to help you!
