Desensitization

Desensitization

In our office, we provide a program called "desensitization" for many children who requires more time to get used to the dental office environment as well as routine check-ups.

The goal of desensitization is to have a child get used to the dental exam, cleaning and radiographs in a step-by-step fashion. Most children adapt to this protocol easily and show tremendous improvement within the first few visits, whereas some children may require more appointments to achieve a successful dental appointment.

Desensitization gives a child an opportunity to get accustomed to a dental office and the staff and can also help with at-home dental care.
