Our pediatric dentist and team are delighted to offer sedation dentistry as an option for our patients, particularly those who require more extensive treatments or who suffer from anxiety or fear. Our goal in providing pediatric sedation is to help your child receive the care they need calmly and in total comfort.
There are several forms of sedation available for your child, and our pediatric dentist will discuss their specific needs with you to find the right option. Types of sedation available here at Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics include:
When your child receives dental sedation, we will take special care to ensure their safety and comfort, as well as the success of their treatment. This will require thorough preparation before their appointment and careful monitoring during and after their procedure. Our team will provide comprehensive instructions for you and your child to follow in preparing for and recovering from a sedation appointment. As a parent or guardian, you play a crucial role in minimizing risks and ensuring the success of your child’s treatment by helping them adhere to these guidelines.
Following your child’s sedation appointment, they may experience grogginess or drowsiness. We recommend that you or another adult remain with your child for several hours afterward to monitor their condition during their initial recovery.
