Fear of the dentist is one of our most common fears. Many patients avoid seeking dental treatment because of these fears. Children are no exception.
In this program, Dr. Malamed will review the two most commonly employed management techniques for dental fear and anxiety: the oral route of drug administration (e.g., triazolam [Halcion]) and inhalation (N20-02).
We will compare their efficacy and safety, as well as their utility in the pediatric dental patient.
