Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation is sometimes used for very young children that are unable to cooperate for dental treatment due to the extensive amount of treatment needed or for some children that have an extreme amount of dental anxiety.

This kind of sedation is used for a child’s comfort and safety. Conscious sedation medicine can significantly reduce the amount of anxiety and discomfort associated with dental treatment. Conscious sedation medicines cause most children to become relaxed and drowsy during treatment.
