Conscious Sedation

Pediatric Dental Treatment with Conscious Sedation

Some children need help to relax in preparation for their dental treatment. At Grove Dental, we offer sedation as a safe and effective way to ease treatment. Our treatments not only help to ease anxiety, it suppresses the gag reflex. If sedation is required for your child’s dental treatment, they will begin with the opportunity to choose a nose piece that comes in several fun colors and scents. Children remain awake and aware for the duration of their appointment. Our sedation options are conscious, meaning they do not put a child to sleep. At the end of the appointment, oxygen is inhaled for 5-10 minutes to completely flush the sedation from their system, leaving no lingering effects.
