Let’s face it – going to the dentist to get a cavity filled is not the most fun experience for children (or adults). The combination of a crowded waiting room and not knowing what to expect during the procedure may cause your child to feel anxious and upset, making the whole appointment more difficult for both your child and their dentist. Luckily, there is a solution, and Sea of Smiles has incorporated it into their services! This pediatric dentist offers the best pediatric conscious sedation Bensalem can offer close to home. Let the worries melt away with this game changing procedure.
The Benefits of Pediatric Dentist Conscious Sedation for Your Child
Not familiar with pediatric sedation dentistry? Let’s fill you in. At Sea of Smiles, their pediatric dentists use a mild, liquid sedative agent before any dental procedure (if necessary) to ease any nervousness and anxiety that can inhibit their dental procedure. Here are three common “side effects” of pediatric conscious sedation.
- Sleepiness/Drowsiness. Your child will definitely feel a weightless sensation after taking the liquid sedative agent. Pediatric conscious sedation melts the anxiety and fears away, giving the impression that your child is sleepy or drowsy. This promotes relaxation and allows their pediatric dentist to carry on with the procedure without any push back sparked by fear.
- Loss of Apprehension. While this goes without saying, conscious sedation will erase the feeling of apprehension that they were feeling about their dental procedure when they first walked in the door.
- Dizziness. After your child’s procedure is finished, the sedative may still be lingering. If this is the case, your child may feel a little dizzy after getting up from the dental chair. Take caution when leaving the dentist’s office and make sure your child gets to the car safely. But, not to worry. These side effects only last between 2-4 hours.
