FAQs

Do you offer any dental sedation methods for children?

Conscious sedation is used on children that require multiple procedures at once. This type of sedation is also used on children with special needs because it allows them to relax while the dental work is being done. Conscious sedation will not put your child to sleep, although they may become sleepy. They will still be able to respond to voices and have full control over their protective resources. These include:



  • Gas (inhaled)

  • Pill or syrup (swallowed)

  • Shot (injected)

  • Intravenously (through the veins)


Oral sedation is another form of dental sedation used for children. This type of sedation is often used on children who require more help when it comes to sitting still. It is also used when a child is extremely anxious about their dental procedure.


General anesthesia will render your child unconscious so that the dentist can safely work on their mouth. Your child will fall into a deep sleep and will feel no pain. General anesthesia is administered in a hospital by an anesthesiologist and is required for larger surgeries like the removal of tonsils. Your child will be monitored when they are under general anesthesia to ensure that no risks are incurred.

Should you consider sedation dentistry?

Patients will have a number of reasons as to why they prefer to be sedated. Nonetheless, a dentist will be happy to offer one of the various forms of sedation to a patient as long as they deem it to be necessary.



  1. Fear of pain

  2. Fear of dentists

  3. Anxiety

  4. Sensitive teeth

  5. Restlessness

  6. Chronic jaw pain

  7. Does not respond well to other anesthetics


Sedation can be extremely beneficial to patients. When going to the dentist frightens you, the thought of pain scares you, or you can’t sit still long enough for a lengthier procedure, consider sedation dentistry.
