Avon, Ohio (PRWEB) March 15, 2017
New patients with dental fear in Avon, OH, are now welcome to receive sedation dentistry from Drs. Carolyn Crowell, Charissa McCune and Maria Ramirez, without first receiving a referral. Drs. Crowell, McCune and Ramirez are experienced pediatric dentists who understand how dental appointments can make some young patients with dental anxiety nervous. With the help of sedation dentistry and a fun and comfortable environment, many children are able to receive the dental care they need while remaining calm and relaxed during treatment.
Drs. Crowell, McCune and Ramirez are educating parents on the importance of providing dental care to their children at a young age. Children who develop good oral habits are much more likely to continue those same oral habits as they become adults. While some parents are wary of taking their children to the dentist due to their child’s dental fear, Drs. Crowell, McCune and Ramirez provide kind, gentle care and offer sedation dentistry to help make young patients feel more comfortable and at ease.
Sedation dentistry can be offered via nitrous oxide (otherwise known as “laughing gas”), intravenous (IV) sedation and general anesthesia. Nitrous oxide is one of the most common sedation options and is designed to be inhaled during the patient’s appointment. The safe and gentle gas causes the child to feel drowsy and relaxed so he or she does not experience fear during treatment. Intravenous sedation is administered through an IV and is recommended for those who are extremely apprehensive about receiving treatment. General anesthesia is administered on an outpatient basis and is generally reserved for children with special needs or severe dental anxiety. Children who receive this type of sedation are unconscious during treatment.
Drs. Crowell, McCune and Ramirez are compassionate pediatric dentists who seek to alleviate patient anxiety whenever possible. Patients with dental fear in Avon, OH, are invited to call 440-934-0149 to schedule a sedation dentistry appointment.
