To ensure your child’s comfort during each visit to our office, we may recommend oral sedation, a form of conscious sedation. Administered as a simple oral medication, oral sedation offers several advantages to enhance their experience:

  • Quick and easy to use: Oral sedation is a convenient and straightforward method.
  • Amnesic effect for comfort: Oral sedation provides the necessary amnesic effect, allowing your child to have a more relaxed experience.
  • Cost-effective: Oral sedation typically incurs lower costs compared to other forms of sedation.

If you and our pediatric dentists determine that oral sedation is suitable for your child, they will be prescribed a medication to help them relax. You will receive specific instructions on when and how to administer the medication before their scheduled appointment. When you arrive at our office, your child will be awake but in a highly relaxed state. They may feel drowsy, and it is common for children not to recall the details of their appointment.
