Dental Oral Sedation

The dental team at Bite Size Pediatric Dentistry recognizes the importance of children having a positive and relaxing experience during their dental visit. We believe that children should have a positive relationship with their dental provider and create an experience where quality dental care is provided. In some instances, sedation dentistry is offered for children who need some help navigating through anxious dental procedures.

Our top pediatric dentists at Bite Size Pediatric Dentistry, are trained and able to provide additional sedation techniques for children that need extra comfort or reassurance. One of these sedation options is called “oral sedation.”

Oral Sedation in Frankfort, IL

In addition to nitrous oxide sedation and general anesthesia, oral sedation is another form of sedation dentistry for kids at Bite Size Pediatric Dentistry. Oral sedation is a medication that is taken orally prior to your child’s appointment. It is best that oral sedation is provided by a trained and licensed pediatric dentist, such as one of our top pediatric dentists at Bite Size Pediatric Dentistry, Frankfort, IL. Once the oral medication takes effect, your child may feel drowsy and relaxed. Oral Sedation helps the child to better deal with dental treatment and prevents injury to the child from uncontrolled or undesirable movements. Sedation encourages an environment for providing better and safe dental care.

The advantages to oral sedation are that the child can feel more relaxed, receive dental care in a safe environment, and the medication can have an amnesia quality where the child may not recall details of their appointment/procedure. Oral sedation can take time to wear off and although your child can be more relaxed for the procedure, children are conscious and awake for oral sedation procedures.
