What if a child is unable to cooperate for treatment?

We try to help your child feel good about visiting the dentist. Our main concern is what is best for your child. For mildly anxious or nervous children, nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”, can be very effective. If a child is especially fearful or suffers from extreme situational anxiety, we may recommend sedation or general anesthesia in order to ensure the safest delivery of the best possible treatment for your child in a more controlled environment.
