Tiny Tooth Pediatric Dentistry
Your Trusted Local Pediatric Dentist
The hardest thing about getting treatment at the dentist, especially for young children, is managing fear and anxiety. Usually, this has to do with fear of the unknown.
At Tiny Tooth Pediatric Dentistry, we practice proven methods that make for a positive treatment experience.
Parent involvement: Although some children do better without parents present during treatment, we are open to having you stay with your child. If you choose to be present, we ask that you follow these guidelines:
Kid-friendly vocabulary: In order to improve the chances of your child having a positive experience, we are selective with our use of words. Please support us by NOT USING negative words.
Use of Nitrous Oxide/laughing gas:
In our office, we use nitrous oxide in most treatment appointments. Nitrous oxide is given through a small breathing mask which is placed over your child’s nose, allowing them to relax, but without putting them to sleep. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recognizes this technique as a very safe, effective technique to use for treating children’s dental needs. Your child will remain conscious and keep all natural reflexes.
