In-Office Treatment

At Hamlin Pediatric Dentistry, we have a wide range of in-office care options, including fillings, extractions, and crowns.
Because of the large number of cleaning appointments we do after school, and because most children do best early in the day, these appointments are usually scheduled in the mornings and early afternoons.

Treatment Plans & Policies

Treatment can fluctuate extraordinarily from one child to another contingent upon the degree of their problem(s), their age, and their conduct. If that your youngster requires treatment, the dental specialist will talk about it with you in detail, and the front office staff will go over a treatment plan that outlines the procedures and assessed costs. One parent is welcome to accompany the child for treatment. The exception to this is during sedation appointments, where your child will be accompanied by our staff only. This is purely for the child’s safety.

Nitrous Oxide

We use nitrous oxide, otherwise called laughing gas, for a majority of our treatment procedures. It’s the favored sedation technique for pediatric dental specialists since it’s safe, the effects are practically immediate, and it just requires a few seconds to clear out of their systems once the treatment is finished. Nitrous oxide doesn’t put the children to sleep, it simply assists them with staying calm and still so we can securely finish treatment. It is very well tolerated by children and the most widely recognized side effect is mild nausea that dies down as it is turned off.

Local Anesthetic

We use local anesthetic to numb the region for most of our dental treatments. The local anesthetic is an oral injection, however 95% of our patients never feel it or realize they had it. Our team is great at making sure your child is as comfortable as possible through the process. To avoid anxiety that can be overwhelming, we encourage parents to not inform the child of the injection. High levels of anxiety and nervousness may produce unwanted results and a deeper level of sedation may be needed.
