Sedation Dentistry refers to the use of sedatives to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment.
Sedation dentistry has become popular because it offers benefits for both the patient and the dentist. For some patient groups, the use of sedation dentistry is the only way that they can get the dental care they need and improve their dental health.
Many concerned patients take advantage of our sedation dentistry options to make their treatment a breeze. It is very common for patients to be nervous or even phobic when undergoing dental procedures.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Oral medication provides a safe and convenient way to make your child feel comfortable at the dentist’s office, with no needle use required. When using oral medication, your dentist will prescribe medication that is best suited for your child’s overall health and dental treatment needs.
Before your child’s appointment with us, please inform us of any medications your child is currently taking, or any health conditions they may have. If your child is sick due to non-dental conditions, it may be necessary to postpone the appointment to a later date and time.
Make sure your child does not eat solid food for at least six hours prior to their appointment. Further, they should only drink clear liquids for up to four hours before the time of appointment.
