Anxiety CareWe understand that children can experience dental phobia. At The Oral Hygiene Centre and Devonshire Dental Clinic we recognise the importance of keeping children calm and happy during dental treatment, thus saving them distress both now and in the future. Childhood is a crucial time for ensuring good dental health in the future and our friendly team will do their best to address any concerns that you or your child have about check-ups and necessary treatments.
If any of our younger patients become significantly distressed by dental procedures, we can use a small amount of sedation medication (the minimum possible to ensure safety), whilst carefully monitoring your child. If necessary, we are also able to refer very anxious children to hospital to undergo a procedure under general anaesthetic. Good oral health habits learned early in life help to ensure great oral health in adulthood. Rest assured, we will do our best to show your child that a trip to the dentist is nothing to be worried about. For more information please contact us today.
