All the dentists at West Augusta Dental Associates and the hygienists work on children, ages 3 and older. We want to make sure your child is treated safely, and we want them to have a pleasant experience. We know that children cry for many reasons, so if your child cries before or during an appointment, we will do our best to treat them and to give them a positive experience.
Some children develop advanced dental decay or are so apprehensive that they may require sedation. We do use nitrous oxide sedation on children, but this is a very mild sedation. If your child requires stronger sedation, we will refer them to a pediatric dentist. See "Children's Dentistry" under Bad Breath/Prevention pull down menu for more information.
