Safe and pain-free dental care for children
Every day at Dr. Michael’s Children's Dental Center in Dubai, we see a lot of young patients with very different needs and behaviors.
Many young children come to us with severe pain and need dental treatments, and our pediatric dentists do their best to make every visit as comfortable as possible.
However, some children may need to have their dental treatment performed under general anesthesia to receive comprehensive dental care.
The best way forward
General anesthetic is the best way forward. I mean there’s always a worry doing something like that with your kids, right? But Jacob was fantastic. And we woke up, he was a bit grumpy for half an hour and then he was running around. So, I would advise it for that level of treatment for sure.
We don't regret any second
A very important indicator for us after the surgery and after the few days recovery and she started eating much. We kept on observing her and she’s eating much better and she feels much more confident. We are very happy and we thank you for everything you’ve done. We don’t regret any second. We have already started recommending it.
It was well worth it
The change in Lucas, it was quite astonishing actually. Prior, he was always agitated. He is unable to communicate to us what exactly the problems are for him. After this, was fantastic. He’s like a different child. So, it was well worth going through this work to have it done. He’s a different kid.
General anesthesia is a safe state of controlled unconsciousness. Your child will be put to sleep while your pediatric dentist performs the dental work. The anesthesia will be carried out by a licensed anesthesiologist who will monitor your child during the entire course of the procedure. Your child will be unconscious, free from pain and will be unaware of the treatment.
Young children, including those with extreme anxiety uncontrolled with other conscious sedation techniques, and children with special needs are candidates for general anesthesia. They are often best treated while they are asleep using general anesthesia. The length and extent of the procedure, the level of cooperation and developmental issues all come into play when it comes to delivering excellent quality of care.
Our pediatric dentists work together with the best anesthesiologists to carry out the best dental care in a safe, controlled and pain-free manner.
