Oral Sedation

What is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation can be administered to your child to make their time with us more comfortable. It is not uncommon for children to be frightened over their dental appointment, especially if more complicated work is needed. We offer partial to full sedation that will make their appointment much more comfortable. With a quick consultation with Dr. Mina, we can determine the best type of oral sedation for your child’s needs.

Why would your child need Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation is ideal for children who are very anxious over their dental appointment. Children who are unable to sit still to have work done will benefit from oral sedation because treatment can be provided to them in a safe, efficient manner. Oral sedation is completely safe, as it is customized for each individual patient.
