Sedation uses medications to assist the child to cope with fear/anxiety and cooperate for dental treatment. Sedation is recommended for apprehensive children, very young children, and children with special needs. During dental sedation, your child may become very drowsy and even fall asleep, but will not become unconscious.
There are a variety of medications that may be used during sedation. The dentist will choose the medication best suited for your child’s overall health and treatment recommendations. Please read our Dental Sedation FAQ or let us know if you have any questions regarding the specific medications used during your child’s sedation.
Please send us your contact information and select an ideal appointment date. We will contact you to confirm an appointment (typically within 24 hours).
If you or your child is experiencing an emergency, please call us.
