Sedation Dentistry For Children In Fort Worth

There are many types of sedation dentistry for children“, but first you may want to know what exactly defines sedation. Sedation is when a dentist administers medication to your child so they are calm, but not sound asleep, for a dental procedure. Dental sedation medicine may last up to six hours. Your dentist may recommend the use of this mild sedative for long or multiple procedures, for children with high anxiety around dental care,” children who have difficulty sitting still or for kiddos with special needs. Remember that dental sedative medication does not control pain or discomfort. Once your child is under sedation”, the dentist will then give him or her an injection (or multiple injections) to numb the treatment area during and after the procedure. If your child has difficulty relaxing at the dentist, it may be due to a previously bad dental experience or just a general fear of doctors.
