Sedation Dentistry In Alexandria For Kids And Parents

Sedation Dentistry In Alexandria For Kids And Parents

At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry we know that many children in Alexandria¬†fear going to the dentist. I am Dr. James D. Geren and my staff and I at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry want to make your child’s first visit to my family dentistry practice a positive experience. Regular dental check-ups from toddler age are an essential part of oral hygiene.

Alexandria parents can follow these guidelines to help prepare their child for a dental visit.

1. Talk about the exam with your child. Answer any questions with uncomplicated answers
2. Don’t share your bad dental experiences with your child
3. Don’t imply that the exam will be painful
4. Help your child understand that this is an important part of staying healthy
5. Don’t offer a reward for visiting the dentist

It is important for parents to make sure they aren’t anxious about cosmetic dental visits because children can sense their stress.

At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry we have been treating children and adults since 1983. Our professional, friendly staff can calm the nerves of a fearful child and help them have a gentle dental experience.

If you or your child has had a bad dental experience or is unable to stay calm while visiting the dentist, ask us about sedation dentistry. We want all of our patients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible while receiving excellent dental care.

For simple dental procedures topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing oral sensation. If you require more sedation, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are safe solutions.

Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry also offers complete smile makeovers which may include dental implants, teeth whitening, dental veneers, or any other cosmetic dental procedures required. All of these can be done with some type of sedation if required.

Don’t let your fears or your child’s fears keep your child from having a beautiful, healthy smile. Contact Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry today!
