Dr. Carla LaLande and our dental team do our best to help your child feel calm and comfortable at our office. This is why we offer in-office sedation.
Unlike general anesthesia, your child will remain awake during their treatment when they use in-office sedation. Even though they can communicate during the treatment, they will be free of pain and anxiety. This sedative is also known as conscious sedation. This is a good option for children who are nervous at the dental office or for children who have special needs.
Before the appointment, it’s best to talk to your child about the appointment. Explain what the sedative will do for them and what will happen during the treatment. Make sure they know it’s best to fast from foods and fluids prior to the appointment.
After the appointment, your dentist will not discharge the child until he feels they are ready. It’s best to keep your child at home for the remainder of the day with adult supervision because they will feel groggy after the appointment.
