One of the options to help your child relax before an upcoming appointment at Desert Sun Pediatric Dentistry is through oral sedation. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. J. Cam West, may suggest oral sedation in Mesa, Arizona, as a simple and cost-effective way to take the stress out of your child’s visit. To learn more, contact our office at 480-275-5099 to ask any questions or plan your child’s visit.
Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that we may recommend to help ensure that your child has a comfortable experience each time they visit our office. Administered in pill or liquid form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, your child will remain awake during the treatment, but will feel more relaxed and at ease. There are many other benefits to sedation dentistry, including:
- There are no needles involved.
- It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
- Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.
If you and our pediatric dentist determine that oral sedation is right for your child, they will be prescribed a medication that will help them relax. You will also receive instructions about when your child should take the medication before their scheduled appointment. Be certain to follow the specific instructions included with the medication.
