At Doby’s Bridge Pediatric Dentistry, we aim to make every child’s dental experience a great one! From the youngest to the oldest, we don’t want dental fears to get in between your child and their dental care. If your child is anxious and has trouble getting through a dental appointment, sedation dentistry can help them feel at ease throughout the most important visits! Your child’s dentist can help you understand the benefits of sedation dentistry and how sedation may help your child through their next appointment.
What is Conscious Sedation?
With conscious sedation, your child’s dentist will administer an oral sedative before their dental appointment begins. This sedative begins to work quickly, allowing your child to feel relaxed by the time they sit in the dental chair.
Conscious sedation gives your child’s dentist the opportunity to work on their smile while they are completely relaxed. This can be beneficial if your child has dental fears or if a lot of dental work is needed. Your child’s dentist can accomplish a lot in just one visit with the help of sedation dentistry. Your child will feel drowsy and relaxed throughout the entire visit, but will be able to respond to their dentist as needed. Our team carefully monitors each of our little patients using conscious sedation to ensure they are healthy, safe and well-cared for during their visit. In addition, your child will remember little to nothing from their appointment. The sedation will fully wear away by evening, allowing your child to get back to their normal routine.
