It’s important that children receive regular dental care and get off to a good start – in order to enjoy good dental health throughout their lifetimes.
In our dental office, we love to see children, and we aim to give them a positive experience, each and every time they come in.
Some children have a difficult time visiting the dentist, and oral sedation can help. We love to see children!
Oral sedation can be effective for children who:
- are afraid of the dentist
- have had a bad experience in a dental office
- have a physical disability
- have trouble sitting still
- can’t keep their mouths open
- have a strong gag reflex
- have TMJ problems
- need to have extensive dental work completed
- are hyperactive
- have special needs
We are only able to offer oral sedation for children who are age twelve or older, but we can use laughing gas (a more mild form of sedation) for younger children.
We administer oral sedation through a pill that’s taken before the dental appointment. Oral sedation is often referred to as “conscious sedation,” because patients are conscious during their appointments, but not fully alert. Thanks to oral sedation, time seems to fly by, and afterward, there’s little or no memory of what happened.
Oral sedation can help block out the sights, sounds, and smells of the dental office – which can be a great benefit for children.
