Children affected by dental anxiety or with special needs that make it difficult to tolerate care may require the additional support in the form of dental sedation to undergo essential dental care. Depending on the type of procedure, your child’s medical history and dental needs, the most appropriate method of dental sedation will be determined. Sedation dentistry helps your child feel deeply relaxed throughout their course of care, eliminating negative associations with the dentist’s chair and making your child’s next visit to the dentist much easier. There are several options in dental sedation available for your child, including inhalation sedation, oral sedatives, IV sedation, as well as general anesthesia performed in the appropriate setting for particular procedures or circumstances. Each of these options has special considerations, which will be explained in greater detail before your child’s dental procedure is scheduled.
