Conscious Sedation is recommended for apprehensive children, very young children, and children with special needs. It is used to calm your child and to reduce the anxiety or discomfort associated with dental treatments. Your child may be quite drowsy, and may even fall asleep, but they will not become unconscious.
There are a variety of different medications, which can be used for conscious sedation. The doctor will prescribe the medication best suited for your child’s overall health and dental treatment recommendations. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have concerning the specific drugs we plan to give to your child.
For years, A Better Smile has offered deep sedation to children. There are so many young kids who need dental work done, but due to age, special needs, or other reasons, they are not able to handle dentistry in a traditional setting. A Better Smile has helped countless children through deep sedation, and we take pride in taking excellent care of all our patients.
We are fortunate to have highly-trained certified nurse assistants who provide the deep sedation while we provide dental work. If you have a child who needs our services, please feel free to call our office or make an appointment for a consultation, and one of our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have.
