If necessary, the team undertake to provide specialized care services (dental surgery) in cooperation with the hospital of Ixelles and the C.H.I.R.E.C of Braine l’Alleud where dental care operations are done under general anesthesia.
The dentists of Dentist4Kids may, if they judge it necessary, take a dental X-ray that enables them to make a precise diagnosis.
In this case, Lina Sereti and Anaïs Charbit use latest generation digital radiography equipment that emits low radiation levels (the radiation rate of these innovative devices is more than 70% lower than that of conventional devices).
Prior to an X-ray scan (intra-oral or panoramic) we request the parents’ consent and always take the required protection measures to shield the child from radiation.
Osteocentral anesthesia (Quicksleeper)
The dental practice Dentist4Kids uses Quicksleeper, a spearhead anesthesia technique that is painless for children. Quicksleeper provides: limited numbing sensation, low dose of product required, localized anesthesia (numbing only at the level of the teeth) and short (30 min to an hour maximum).
In case of complicated treatments (multiple caries) and traumas in very young children or children with disabilities, general anesthesia is often the indicated option. The latter enables the dentist to provide quality treatment services without pain or stress for the child.
Creating a relation of trust and mutual respect with each patient
The outcome of the first appointment is very important since it guides the child’s perception vis-à-vis his/her treatment and dental care in general.
Thus, we do the outmost to ensure that the child’s first contact with the practice shall be both positive and enjoyable.
