Difficult children are often restrained at dentist offices, but not Dr. Abeyta!
Child restraints are often used at dentist offices when children become too difficult to treat and may cause harm to themselves as well as the dentist. These restraints are known as papoose boards, which are comprised of a soft cloth and Velcro. In Dr. Abeyta’s practice, the use of restraints of any kind is not used on the children she treats. These children range in age from 1 to 17 years old. She is able to treat her patients without the use of restraints in a manner that is healthy and not harmful to the children.
