What Is Pediatric Hospital Dentistry?

As the name suggests, pediatric hospital dentistry is a type of pediatric dentistry that’s administered in a hospital setting. The primary advantage of pediatric hospital dentistry is that it allows your child to be sedated with general anesthesia. This means they will be completely unconscious during their procedure. This makes it easier for children with complex oral health issues or kids with special needs to get the care they need in San Antonio. Call us today to learn more!

The Benefits Of Pediatric Hospital Dentistry

Enhanced safety

In a hospital setting, there will always be nurses and doctors to keep an eye on your child’s vital signs before, during, and after their treatment. This means that patients who can’t be safely treated in a traditional dental office can still get the care they need.

Ideal for special needs patients

Children with complex developmental, physical, and or emotional issues can get safe and effective special needs dental care from the team at Smiles of Bulverde in a hospital environment.

Kids won’t remember anything

Unlike other types of pediatric dental sedation, general anesthesia will make your child completely unconscious. They won’t remember anything about their procedure, or feel any pain. In pediatric hospital dentistry, a trained anesthesiologist will sedate your child and ensure their safety throughout their entire treatment.

The Pediatric Hospital Dentistry Process

First, you will meet with a San Antonio pediatric dentist at Smiles of Bulverde, and discuss your child’s medical history and needs. Dr. Lisa Ding can determine if pediatric hospital dentistry is necessary for your child, or if they can receive treatment in a traditional dental office.

Hospital intake

If your child is approved for hospital dentistry, you’ll be referred to one of our local hospital partners. You and your child will need to come to the hospital as scheduled to be admitted to the facility.
