When it comes to pediatric dental procedures, some children get anxiety even thinking about going to the dentist. Sedation dentistry for kids is a great option for easing the fear of dental work.
If you think that sedation might be the right option for your child, keep reading to learn all the “whats” there is to know.
Depending on the patient’s medical history, combined with the dental treatment being performed, there are two levels of sedation given to young patients.
Deep sedation such as anesthesia is only performed on extreme procedures or medical emergencies. Children nor adults will be put under deep sedation for common dental work.
Effects of sedation can last up to 6 hours after a procedure is done. This depends on the level of sedation used and each individual person.
Everyone has different comfort levels. We recommend your child brings along something comfortable to them. You can also help them with any anxiety and fear during sedation.
