Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves medication administered upon arrival to the office allowing your child to get comfortable and the medication to take effect before the procedure begins. Children are awake during the procedure but many have very little memory of the visit. Falling asleep during the procedure is common, but they are responsive to a gentle shake. Our providers who offer oral sedation are certified by the Board of Dentistry in their state.

Children sometimes need a little help relaxing during extensive dental treatment. Our pediatric specialists are certified in sedation treatment. Contact us to learn more.

Why would a child need sedation treatment?

Children who are very fearful of the dentist or require extensive dental treatment may benefit from sedation treatment. Our pediatric specialists may recommend sedation if they believe it will help your child feel more comfortable during their visit. If you are interested in learning more about the sedation options available, our friendly staff would be happy to discuss them with you in more detail.

Is sedation dentistry safe for my child?

Sedation is generally safe for most people. However, it is important to talk to your dentist to make sure your child is a good candidate for sedation to avoid any potential complications.
