As a pedodontist, Dr. Lan Nguyen is specifically trained to treat your child in a way that best suits their age and needs. Dr. Nguyen is extremely gentle and patient with kids and once he gains their trust, it’s often possible to treat them without sedation.
However, just like adults, each child is unique, and we want every little patient we treat to feel comfortable, safe, and secure. We are pleased to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a mild form of sedation that allows your child to relax and produces no drowsy after-effects. Light or conscious sedation is also available using oral medication to treat an apprehensive child at our Corona dental office.
We are also pleased to offer the services of a licensed anesthesiologist who is on staff and trained to safely administer sedation dentistry for your child. This means that we can provide IV sedation or even general anesthesia to address multiple dental problems in one visit.
Approaching your child’s treatment in this way allows us to provide all the care they need at one time, minimizing the number of visits they need to make to our office.
If you are interested in sedation dentistry for children, please let a member of our Corona dental team know. Your child’s comfort and safety are our highest priorities!
