Reassuring Children's Sedation Dentist
Our children's sedation dentist also uses oral sedation, the most common technique employed in the U.S., to ease patient fears. This simple technique is needle-free and results in an especially comfortable visit. Most patients don't even remember the visit—it's as if they slept through the entire process. In reality, patients maintain a level of consciousness to allow cooperation and ensure safety.
Intravenous Sedation Also Available
An intravenous injection of a local anesthetic temporarily blocks pain signals from the gum tissue and teeth. The injection is administered after your child is made calm and comfortable. They will most likely not even remember the procedure or the injection. No matter what type of sedation dentist your child gets, the presence of a responsible caregiver is very important. The caregiver should accompany the child and offer emotional support. After returning home, the caregiver should stay with the child for another two to four hours.
