The Rainbow Stabilizing System helps to minimize the risk of your child making any unsafe movements during their dental procedure. The system involves a comfortable board (sometimes known as a papoose board) and specially designed Rainbow Wrap. The wrap will keep your child’s arms and legs securely in place while we work on their smile. The system is designed to look as friendly as possible so that your child doesn’t mind staying in place during their treatment.
