When it comes to dental treatments and our children, most parents want to make sure they prepare properly before any procedures. For the most part, dental treatments require very little preparation outside of getting your child ready and explaining what happens, however, in situations where sedation is used, some pre-op instructions are necessary.
Wondering how you can prepare your child for their dental treatment such as a filling, extraction or pulpectomy? Unless your child is receiving nitrous oxide, oral or IV sedation, preparation should be fairly simple. We suggest you discuss the treatment with your child and explain why it is necessary to keep their smile healthy. Some parents may think offering a “reward” will help calm their child, however, in our experience children may associate the reward with treatment being “bad” or “scary.” If you have any questions about your child’s dental treatment prior to their appointment, don’t hesitate to contact our Houston pediatric dental office, we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you have any additional questions regarding pre-op instructions, your child’s treatment or sedation dentistry, don’t hesitate to contact our Houston pediatric dentist. We would be happy to discuss any questions and/or concerns you may have and hope to make this experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
