Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation we may recommend to ensure your child has a comfortable experience each time they visit our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, your child will remain awake during the treatment, but will feel more relaxed and at ease. There are many benefits to sedation dentistry, including:
If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for your child, they will be prescribed a pill that will help them relax. You will be instructed to give them the pill before their scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with the pill. When you arrive at our office, your child will be awake but extremely relaxed. They may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for your child to not remember all of the details of their appointment.
