Oral sedation is a drink administered by our doctors in office and is used for patients who due to age and/or high anxiety (dental phobia) cannot cope with traditional dental treatment. Their fear and anxiety causes them a tremendous amount of stress. Oral conscious sedation is a way of using medication to relax a child without the loss of consciousness. Conscious sedation aids in calming a child so that he or she can accept dental treatment in a more relaxed state. This can help prevent injury to the patient and provide a better environment for providing dental care. Pediatric dentists are trained to administer, monitor and manage sedated patients.
