Sedation for Kids – Easing Anxiety During a Dental Visit
Many children are usually anxious about dental visits, especially if they had a bad experience during the first time. The anxiety, combined with the discomfort and pain caused by invasive procedures such as pulpotomy, oral surgery, and tooth extraction can lead to a very unpleasant and unbearable dental session for your kid. Fortunately, it is possible to put your child at ease and protect them from the pain some procedures can cause using sedation. At Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry, we offer several sedation solutions for kids, which guarantee a comfortable, pain-free, and safe session during various dental procedures.

Is Sedation for Kids Safe?
As a parent, worrying about your child’s safety is a valid concern, which is why it would be understandable to be uneasy about the thought of them being sedated. Sedation for kids is, however, a safe procedure as it involves the use of safe and approved sedative agents. Your child is also closely monitored during the dental procedure, which helps to prevent the occurrence of problems such as over or under sedation.
