Conscious oral sedation is achieved by using prescription sedatives that are given in our office, based on your child’s medical history, age and weight. Within an hour of taking the medication, your child will feel drowsy and almost as if they are daydreaming.
Oral sedation is perfect for children that have:
- Moderate anxiety
- Certain special needs
- Moderate to significant restorative needs
- An inability to sit still for their treatment
Each of Denali Pediatric Dentistry dentists is a licensed oral sedation provider. During the procedure, we carefully monitor your child to ensure their absolute safety. We want you to know that we care for our patients the same way we would care for our own children!
We also offer IV Sedation in a hospital setting for our young patients who need extensive dental services.
