Sedating children for dental work datingrealsingles com
Although we live in the East Bay, we went to UCSF for his dental care because of the sedation - the cost was split between medical ins for the use of the hospital and staff; and dental ins for the dental services.
While I would prefer to keep him sedated for his visit, it becomes an all day event for us.
They squirted something up his nose to make him drowsy and then set up an IV for the general anesthesia.
All he remembers is ''yucky medicine up my nose'' and then nothing.
We stopped this because the dentist felt at 4 times a year, it really wasn't a viable option for us.
After the visit, he was upset with me for allowing this to happen him. old son has 8 cavities the pedi dentist say may be due to nursing at night.
My 15 month old has severe tooth decay due to excessive nursing especially at night.
My dentist has suggested a temporary filler that releases flouride and brushing religiously.
general dentist and mother Jan 2008 I would like some advice and reccomendations on pediatric dentist in the Bay Area. I would like to know more about iv sedation and the risks involved before i proceed with on my son.
Any comments and emails would be helpful in this dilemma i am having.
